This unique challenge brings together everyone from chief executives to taxi drivers, nurses and firefighters, farmers, airline pilots and students, from age 18 upwards, to take on Mother Nature’s toughest conditions. There is no upper age limit, the oldest competitor to date is 74.

Whether they choose to take on the whole circumnavigation or compete in one or more of eight individual legs, all our crew achieve something remarkable as they conquer some of the world’s most challenging oceans.

The overall route is split into a series of global races and a maximum 12 points going to first place ascending to 1 point for twelfth place. The team with the highest cumulative points at the end of the final race wins the series, and the Clipper Race trophy.

As the crew race they also raise funds and awareness for Unicef, the official Clipper Race charity, to help children in danger all around the world who face a very real challenge of their own every day. In the last race, Clipper Race crew and staff raised over £320,000 for the cause.

After setting off at Liverpool’s Royal Albert Dock in August 2017, the 2017-18 Clipper Race will return to Liverpool on 28 July 2018. For more information, go to: www.clipperroundtheworld.com
