The Clipper 09-10 Round the World Yacht Race starts from the Humber on the east coast of the UK on 13 September 2009. The Clipper Race is the only global competition where people from all walks of life can step out of their comfort zones and sign up to race 35,000-miles around the world. They come from backgrounds as varied as marketing executives, nurses, bankers, engineers and chief executives who represent more than 30 nationalities. The race is contested by ten identical stripped down 68-foot racing yachts, each sponsored by a city, region or country. Clipper was founded by sailing legend Sir Robin Knox Johnston and the Clipper 09-10 race will be the seventh time his teams of amateur sailors will circumnavigate the planet.
The Clipper 09-10 route will take them from the Humber to Europe, Rio de Janeiro, South Africa, Western Australia, Singapore, Qingdao, California, Panama, the Caribbean, New York, Cape Breton Island, Cork and back to the Humber, where they are due to arrive on 17 July 2010.
