CLIPPER 2023-24 ROUND THE WORLD YACHT RACE

‘People from around the world and all walks of life train to become ocean racing sailors. This unique, epic event sees teams battle extreme conditions as they race more than 40,000 nautical miles in a true test of fortitude and determination.’ – Clipper Round the World Yacht Race

The Our Isles and Oceans Clipper 70 racing yacht will be competing in the Clipper 2023-24 Round the World Race. Our Isles and Oceans will travel 40,000 nautical miles in a race broken into eight legs and visiting at least ten notable ports around the world.

This challenge is taken on by everyday people with no experience necessary and those involved in the Our Isles and Oceans campaign will have the chance to apply to take part in this once in a lifetime opportunity.
