The Clipper Round The World (RTW) Race is the longest and only worldwide yacht race open to sailing novices. In this ninth edition of the race, sailors will compete on one of the twelve brand new 70-foot yachts on their maiden voyage.
The 11-month long race spans across the 6 continents with 15 stopover races and covers over 40,000 miles of sailing! The race is divided into 8 legs (in 15 races) and crews can compete in a full circumnavigation or in one or more legs.
