The Clipper 11-12 Round the World Yacht Race starts from the south coast of the UK on 31 July 2011 and, at 40,000 miles, is the world’s longest ocean race.
It is the only global competition where people from all walks of life can step out of their comfort zone and sign up to race around the world. They come from backgrounds as varied as marketing
executives, nurses, bankers, engineers, chief executives, taxi drivers, carpenters and students and represent more than 40 nationalities.
The race is contested by ten identical stripped down 68-foot racing yachts, each sponsored by a city, region or country. The Clipper Race was founded by sailing legend, Sir Robin Knox-Johnston,
and Clipper 11-12 will be the eighth time his teams of amateur sailors will circumnavigate the planet.
The Clipper 11-12 route will take them from the south coast of the UK to Europe, Rio de Janeiro, Cape Town, Western Australia, New Zealand, the east coast of Australia, Singapore, Qingdao,
California, Panama, New York, Nova Scotia, Derry-Londonderry, the Netherlands and back to the Solent, where they are due to arrive on 22 July 2012.
