Update Regarding CV22

23 September 2019

At 0339 UTC 23 September, the Skipper of CV22 fell overside while assisting in the recovery of a spinnaker. The Additional Qualified Person (AQP) was on deck and immediately took charge. Clipper Race training procedures kicked in and the crew worked to ensure the Skipper was brought quickly back on board in 17 minutes with just a minor cut to their face.

The Clipper Race Office was in constant communication with the yacht. Everyone on board is well and CV22 has resumed racing.
