Clipper Round the World Yacht Race

11 - 18 November 2023
Quay 6

The Clipper Round the World Yacht Race is one of the toughest endurance challenges on the planet. This unique, epic event sees teams battle extreme conditions as they race more than 40,000 nautical miles around the globe in a true test of fortitude and determination.

The Clipper Race is the only event of its kind which trains people from all walks of life to become ocean racers, and many have no previous sailing experience before signing up for the intensive four levels of training prior to racing. Led by a professional Skipper and First Mate, Race Crew can complete the full eleven-month circumnavigation or choose to test themselves on one or multiple legs.

It was founded in 1996 by Sir Robin Knox-Johnston, the first person to sail solo and non-stop around the world, in 1968-69.

Bring family and friends and meet the courageous Race Crew, Skippers and operating teams. Find out what it takes to embark on a leg of the Clipper Race, and how, with no previous sailing experience needed, it is possible to embark on The Race of Your Life.
