Clipper 68s

The race is completed by a fleet of identical yachts. Our race will be run on a new fleet of boats, currently being finalised. As the yachts aren’t yet ready, all of the training and sailing to date has been done on the old fleet.

These boats have been around the world 4 times already and the majority will continue to see service as the training fleet for another 8 years. They have been designed and built to be racing boats which can handle anything the oceans can throw at them. This means luxury, they are not.

There are a couple of photos below of the inside and outside of the yacht I spent a week on recently. You can see the accommodations are functional and that’s about it.
