A Race Without Equal.
This is the Clipper 2019 – 20, the Round the World yachting challenge: a record-breaking eight legs 40 000 nautical mile race between eleven 70 foot ocean racing yachts. Each skippered by a highly experienced professional, the crews are made up of over 700 enthusiastic amateurs – the only requirements being a love of the ocean and an adventurous spirit.
The Clipper 2019-20 is in Cape Town in November, arriving after a 4200 nautical mile South Atlantic crossing from South America. They set sail again on the 17th November from the V&A Waterfront, heading for Western Australia, a challenging 5500 nautical miles distant.
Waterfront Charters will be there! Two of our Adventure Boats will be setting out from the V&A Waterfront approximately 45 minutes before the start of the race for 90 minutes. The yachts will initially be performing the Parade of Sail and Man Overboard drills in the Bay, so we are ensured of being in place to watch the yachts as they set off on their exciting adventure. We will wait for family and friends of crew members who are waving off crew members on the yachts; our RIB’s will leave as soon as we have all aboard.
