The Clipper Round the World Yacht Race is the only event of its kind for people
from all walks of life regardless of previous sailing experience. The race, at 40,000
miles, is the world’s longest global ocean challenge. Crew taking part in this event
represent more than 40 nationalities. They can sign up for the whole circumnavigation
or one or more of eight legs. At each stage crews are award points in a Formula
1 style scoring system and the one with the most overall points at the end of the
completed race wins the coveted Clipper Trophy.
This is a challenge of a lifetime for around 450 people, testing endurance to the
absolute limit. The race will cover 13 countries and 16 ports in varied and unique
cities; with 15 races across 8 legs. For anyone taking part this will be an adventure
to be relished and Grange Hotels would like to wish everyone on this adventure the
best of luck and a safe return into each and every port.
