Sharing adventures: Clipper Race Alumni Photo Competition

19 May 2015

As we approach the twentieth anniversary year of the race, we want to celebrate the years of adventures by sharing crew members favourite memories in our alumni photo competition.

There is just a week left to enter the competition, which closes on 25 May and is open to all former Clipper Race crew members. The competition has six categories (listed below) and each category winner will win a day’s racing with a guest during the iconic Cowes Week on the UK Solent or the CYCA Land Rover Winter Series in Australia.

In addition we have some great prizes up for grabs from our official race partners for the image that best represents their brand. The prizes are a Garmin Virb action camera, , a Henri Lloyd jacket branded with your race year, a ClipperTelemed+ team dry Bag, and a Qingdao model yacht.

Alumni Senior Propositions Manager Caroline Marrows, a Clipper 2013-14 Race crew member says: “As we approach twenty years of Clipper Race action we have been looking through our own archives. There are some great memories, as well as some slightly dodgy haircuts! The photo competition has been launched to celebrate the adventurers who have previously completed the race and hopefully get some of the Alumni back on the water.”

Clipper 2002-03 Race crew member, Lindsay Norman who raced on board the Hong Kong entry has submitted to the competition and says: “Thanks for prompting me to look back over my old photos - so many memories came back.”
