Thousands of spectators descended on St Katharine Docks to witness the unveiling of the Clipper 70, the first of a new fleet of global racing yachts which will allow hundreds of ordinary people to participate in the world’s longest ocean race.
In 1995 Sir Robin Knox-Johnston launched the Clipper Round the World Yacht Race with the vision of enabling ordinary people from all walks of life to experience ocean racing, with the option to either complete a full circumnavigation or to compete in one or more legs. Today the Clipper Race remains the only global ocean race open to amateur participants.
Over 3,000 people attended a full week of events for crew, sponsors and partners, open boat tours held throughout the week allowed sailing enthusiasts and novices eager to learn more about the year-long adventure, an opportunity to see what lies in store for the crew competing in the Clipper 13-14 Race. During the week over 50 additional amateur sailors signed up to take part in the Clipper 13-14 Race, and will join the 560 crew already signed up to be the first to compete using the new fleet of Clipper 70s.
“The week has been an unprecedented success and St Katharine Docks has provided the perfect platform for us to showcase the first Clipper 70, the first from our fleet of 12 matched ocean racers which will compete in the Clipper 13-14 Race,” said Sir Robin.
