Seattle may still seem very far away for the Clipper Race fleet at the moment as it crosses the mighty Pacific Ocean but Race 9: The Race to the Emerald City is hotting up and it is 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 crew on board for Leg 6 have been sharing their experiences with those back home through Crew Diaries on the Clipper Race website. Let us know who you think has been demonstrating the best social spirit!
