Nominations Open for Race 3 Stormhoek Social Spirit Award

15 November 2017

It has been an eventful start to Race 3: the Dell Latitude Rugged Race and there has been plenty of social spirit on display already with the Clipper Race family pulling together in support of the Greenings crew who have been reallocated across the fleet after running aground near Cape Town.

In the race towards Fremantle, Australia, the remaining teams have been battling difficult conditions in the Southern Ocean and, as the front runners pass the halfway mark, it is time for everyone on dry land to start nominating their chosen team for the Stormhoek Social Spirit Award.

The Stormhoek Social Spirit Award celebrates the team spirit of the crew and gives Clipper Race followers the chance to nominate the team they believe has shown real strength throughout each of the 13 individual races. The award is open to teams regardless of finishing position and the prize is a Stormhoek Social Spirit pennant to decorate the yacht.

Winners of the award so far have included:

  • Race 1 – Greenings
  • Race 2 – PSP Logistics

In order to nominate the team you would like to win the Stormhoek Social Spirit Award, log on to the Stormhoek Wines Facebook page, submit your nomination and reason why. Nominations will close at 11.59pm on the first day of the Fremantle arrival window (21 November 2017).

Through the Crew Diaries and Skipper Blogs, the teams have been sharing their experiences and daily challenges as they make their way from Cape Town to Fremantle, Australia. To read the Crew Diaries from Race 3: the Dell Latitude Rugged Race, click here.
