The world’s longest ocean race is looking for Sydney residents to take on the challenge of a lifetime in the next edition of the Clipper Round the World Yacht Race. Now in its twentieth year, the Clipper Race is the only event which trains people from all walks of life, regardless of previous sailing experience, to race 40,000 nautical miles around the world under sail, through some of Mother Nature’s most remote and extreme conditions. Crew members can choose to do the full 11 month-long circumnavigation or one or more of the eight legs the race is divided into.

Sydney is one of only two cities in the world where crew can choose to complete their intensive pre-race training, and Australia is the second largest nationality of crew represented on the race, with 57 crew from Down Under on the 2015-16 edition, including its first female Australian skipper in the races history, Wendy Tuck.

Have you got what it takes? This event is for those eager to test their limits beyond belief and find out how they can take part in the next race. Come and hear about if from local crew who has been there, stared Mother Nature in the eye and taken all she can muster. You will find out more about the selection process, training, the race, the fleet, stopovers, personal logistics and most importantly the race crew. You'll either walk away inspired or scared. One thing you won't be is bored.
