Last September I published a couple of posts about the start of the Clipper Round the World race.
The fleet of twelve boats and 670 crew have raced almost 40,000 miles and visited 16 ports on six continents, in the world’s longest ocean race.
The first leg of the Clipper Race ended in Rio de Janeiro, They then continued on via South Africa, Western Australia, Sydney (including the world-famous Sydney-Hobart Race), Singapore, China, San Francisco, Panama, Jamaica, New York, Derry Londonderry and are at the present in the Netherlands before returning to London’s St Katharine Docks for Race Finish on 12th July 2014.
Race 16, Den Helder to London, starts on Thursday July 10.
