Designed by renowned naval architect, Ed Dubois, the stripped down racing yachts are designed for fast, downwind ocean racing and, with an open deck layout, provide a perfect platform for corporate events, management training and team development programmes.
The yachts are built for speed and safety and are therefore ideal for experienced and novice sailors alike and give an unparalleled hands on racing challenge.
The Clipper Events skippers are all highly qualified professional sailors, most of whom have circumnavigated with the Clipper Round the World Yacht Race, or are preparing to do so and are employed to train our non-professional round the world crews.
They apply these same training techniques to all of our fleet racing events. By the time the start gun sounds on any event the teams on board are honed to a slick racing team, equipped with the skills to handle all elements of big boat sailing while the skipper concentrates on tactics and the safety of his crew.
It was absolutely fantastic, enjoyed every minute! I still can feel the rope in my hand and can hear the shouts in my ears, "Ready for the tack? - Pull it like crazy! - Ease the yankey! - Tighten the ropes!! - Hold it there! "
Fabulous, Can't wait for the pics… I would go again now if I had the opportunity!
Great experience with fabulous crew and a spectacular fleet of boats. We’ll be back for more next year!
The feedback for the event was fantastic. What made the day for them was the fantastic crew. They thought skipper and mates were great, relaxed and funny – they’d definitely have them again!
