Clipper Race Partners including SENA, Musto, Marlow Ropes, Spinlock, Coppercoat, and Puerto Sherry Marina also presented at the nine-day trade show.

The presence of partners adds an extra layer of depth to the Clipper Race showcase. Their unwavering support underscores the collaborative spirit that propels the Clipper Race forward. It's not just sailing; its forging partnerships that harness innovation and excellence.

Head of Partnerships, Tom Adams commented: “It was fantastic to attend 2024's boot exhibition in Düsseldorf and engage with our partners who were exhibiting at the show.

“It represents a unique opportunity to network within the marine industry, the innovation and collaboration demonstrated by our partners and other exhibitors makes it worth attending alone.”

Fleet Partner SENA exhibited for the first time, showcasing its Nautitalk Bosun headset which is currently being product tested across the Clipper 70 fleet. And long-standing Official Supplier, Spinlock saw a 20% increase in footfall to its stand in the first two days of the show.

Additionally, it was a pleasure to meet some of the team from Puerto Sherry, who were first introduced to Clipper Ventures at boot Düsseldrof in January 2023 before quickly signing up with the Clipper Race as a Host Port on this edition. “The Clipper Race generates great enthusiasm from both the Northern Europe and international markets, providing a valuable opportunity to engage with partners.” concludes Tom.
