Global brand Garmin is returning for a fourth time as an official supplier in the Clipper 2019-20 Race. As a world leader in marine electronics, Garmin will assist the eleven teams of non-professional sailors as they race 40,000 nautical miles around the globe.
Garmin is an integral part of the journey of the 700 crew members taking part in the Clipper 2019-20 Race and makes products engineered on the inside for life on the outside. The GPS navigation, radar, communication and wind data technology comes into its own as the teams spend eleven months circumnavigating the world, crossing six oceans along the way.
For the 2019-20 edition of the race, a new Garmin chart plotter has been introduced to the helm station to make the fleet more competitive than ever before, whilst still ensuring efficient and safe racing.
Mattias Daldbord, Garmin EMEA Marketing and Communications Manager Marine, said: “When the opportunity arose to continue our official supplier partnership, we were thrilled to do it again. The global communication strategy of the Clipper Race enables us to communicate and engage with a global audience with all that Garmin has to offer in marine electronics.”
