06 March 2018

The Clipper Race fleet has only recently departed Sanya, but with Race 8: The Sailing City Qingdao Cup being one of the shorter but more intense stages of the circumnavigation it is already time to open up nominations 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 and widespread recognition across the fleet.

So far, the winners have included:

Race 1: Greenings

Race 2: PSP Logistics

Race 3: The Clipper Race Family

Race 4: Sanya Serenity Coast

Race 5: HotelPlanner.com

Race 6: Visit Seattle

Race 7: GREAT Britain

The Clipper Race fleet is making its way north east towards Qingdao and is expected into Qingdao Wanda Yacht Club between 13 – 16 March 2018. In the meantime, the crew on board have been sharing their experiences with those back home through Crew Diaries on the Clipper Race website.
