Race Finish Spectator Boat Tickets on sale today!

27 May 2016

Tickets for the Official Spectator Boats for the Clipper Race finish are now on sale.

In 10 weeks’ time, the 12-strong Clipper Race fleet will cross the final finish line of its 40,000 nautical mile ocean odyssey, and its crew will return to St Katharine Docks, London to a hero’s welcome.

If you want to be at the heart of the action, why not join us on board our Official Spectator Boats on the world famous River Thames? Tickets are on sale from 1100 UTC (1200 BST) today (Friday 27 May).

The Official Spectator Boats provide a close up view and truly unique way of celebrating the teams’ circumnavigation.

The Spectator Boats will meet the Clipper Race fleet on the Thames before following its victorious parade all the way up to the iconic Tower Bridge ahead of entering St Katharine Docks. All spectator boats will return to the pier they departed before the Clipper Race teams are due to arrive in St Katharine Docks so there will be time to get to the marina to greet them there too.

07:19 – Fleet arrives at the QE2 Bridge at Dartford
08.48 - Thames Barrier (You will rendezvous with the fleet here)
09.01 – Fleet passes the Millennium Dome
09.12 - Fleet passes Greenwich Observatory
09.30 – Fleet passes Canary Wharf Pier
09.45 – Fleet Arrives at Tower Bridge
10.40 – Fleet enters St Katharine Docks after a parade of sail under Tower Bridge

*These times are all local to London ie. BST which is UTC+1.
