PRAXES believes everyone should have access to timely and experienced medical advice, wherever they are and whenever they need it.
For more than 22 years, PRAXES has provided 24/7 remote medical advice to clients operating in some of the most extreme and remote locations around the world. PRAXES will play a crucial behind-the-scenes role as Global Medical Support Partner to the Clipper 2019-20 Race, drawing on 22 years of experience in providing bespoke medical support and immediate access to its team of doctors.
The 2019-20 race will be the third consecutive edition to benefit from PRAXES’ remote medical support. When it gets underway, PRAXES will have supported 35 Race Skippers, 22 Mates and over 2,000 non-professional crew.
Clipper Race Co-Founder and Chairman Sir Robin Knox-Johnston, the first person to sail solo, non-stop around the world 50 years ago, said: “The Clipper Race fleet races through some of the most remote parts of the planet. At times, the nearest human life will be in the International Space Station. When health and safety is paramount, transport is challenging and timing is critical, the excellent service that PRAXES provides the Clipper Race is invaluable.
In addition to remote medical support at sea, PRAXES provides bespoke medical training to Clipper Race Skippers and Medical Assistant crew members in the lead-up to the circumnavigation and will be available to provide medical support for crew onshore during each of the Clipper Race stopovers.
