03 February 2015

We are pleased to announce that the marine travel company will continue its role as Official Travel Partner for the 2015-16 edition of the race.

At 40,000 nautical miles long with a complex global route that will take almost a year to complete, traversing the world’s oceans is the ultimate travel adventure. Offering a high quality service and cost effective prices 24/7, 365 days a year, the marine travel company and its strategically placed MTA7 Global Partners which cover Asia, Australia, Europe, UK and the USA, will work together to facilitate the extensive travel needs to the next generation of ocean racers.

Welcoming the marine travel company as Official Travel Partner for the fourth consecutive time, Clipper Race Director Justin Taylor says: "With nearly 700 crew members expected to take part in the 2015-16 race, we are confident that MTA7 and the marine travel company continues to be the perfect partner to ensure travel arrangements to, from and during stopovers run as smoothly as possible and allow crew members to concentrate on getting the most out of their race experience.”

Booking through the marine travel company allows our crew members access to MTA7 partner’s globally negotiated marine fares, as well as the best prices on hotel bookings and car hire. Fares are fully flexible in case of delays and increased baggage allowance of 40 kgs which enables crew members to travel with all the kit needed to face the challenges ahead.

“We are delighted to be once again named as Official Travel Partner of the Clipper 2015-16 Round the World Yacht Race,” Says Dave Thompson, MD of the marine travel company.

“The fact that the Clipper Race spans six continents and involves crew members from 40 different countries makes this a challenging crew logistics event. MTA7 and the marine travel company is looking forward to our Global Alliance being involved with more stopovers, giving flexible support and accommodation options to crew members worldwide.”

The Clipper 2015-16 Race will start in the UK on Sunday 30 August and return in the summer of 2016.
