Returning for its second edition, Zhuhai will show the world it’s serious about sailing.
Leading Zhuhai on its circumnavigation is Skipper James Finney, who was also First Mate for the team in the 2019-20 edition.
This edition sees 13 ambassadors selected to fly the flag for Zhuhai. Ambassadors will have the chance to be the voice of their city, sharing its culture as they travel to ports around the world.
Zhuhai will also play host to the Clipper Race and its intrepid crew as the eleven-strong fleet sails into the city in the spring of 2024. The brightly coloured hull of Zhuhai’s yacht will be sure to catch the attention of supporters as it arrives into port.
With the city’s iconic ‘Hundred Islands and Thousand Sails’, Zhuhai has become highly regarded for its marine sports industry. A leader in blue marine tourism, Race Partner Jiuzhou Group Holdings is a keen supporter of many large-scale water sports events along the city’s coastline.
Zhuhai’s water sports industry has entered an important stage of development. Partnering with global events such as the Clipper Race will help promote sailing in Zhuhai and promote its ‘Hundred Islands and Thousand Sails’ to the world.
