The Clipper Round the World Yacht Race is looking for adventurers for the 2017-18 edition of the race, no previous sailing experience is required.

Now in its twentieth year, the Clipper Race, which was founded by legendary sailor Sir Robin Knox-Johnston, the first man to sail single-handed and non-stop around the world in 1968-69 is unique. It is the only event where people from all walks of life, regardless of previous sailing experience, can race around the world under sail. Crew members can choose to do the full 11 month-long, 40,000 mile circumnavigation or one or more of the eight legs the race is divided into.

Each of the fleet of 12 yachts is sponsored by a city, region or country and each of the teams is led by a professional skipper. The 2015-16 edition boasted its first female Australian skipper in the races history, Wendy Tuck and the fleet raced to and from Albany, WA to Sydney, NSW where it participated in the famous Rolex Sydney Hobart Race and onto the Whitsundays, QLD.

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 this unique race. Come and hear about if from someone 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.
