This is the 10th running of Robin Knox-Johnston’s “Clipper Round the World Yacht Race”!
12 identical stripped out racing yachts race 40,000 miles around the world taking some 11 months, including 8 legs and 14 races. Each boat has a professional skipper and a volunteer crew of up to 22 people.
40% have never sailed before, over 50% live abroad, 40% are female, the oldest person will be 76 and the youngest 18.
Every crew member has to successfully complete 4 weeks of training, pass a sea survival course and get seriously fit – both physically and mentally!
