The Clipper Race HQ in Gosport, UK, is a hive of activity, with Prep Week well underway.

Hundreds of Clipper 2019-20 Race crew are busily getting the fleet ready; doing maintenance, organising the all-important victualing, and taking part in training sessions being run by Hyde Sails, Marlow Ropes, and Spinlock.

Prep Week is an extremely important week in the pre-race calendar as it is the last chance for Skippers, Mates, and crew to prepare for their upcoming adventure.

The fleet will depart Gosport for London on Tuesday 20 August and will arrive at St Katharine Docks in London on Thursday 22 August. For more information about the events planned in London in the lead up to Race Start on 1 September, see the St Katharine Docks' Host Port page.
