2019-20 Clipper Race to start sailing from London's St. Katharine Docks
5/13/2019


LONDON, May 13 (Xinhua) -- Organizers announced on Monday that the upcoming Clipper 2019-20 global sailing race will commence from St. Katharine Docks, London, on September 1, 2019.

St. Katharine Docks will see three Chinese flags waving on the Qingdao, Visit Sanya and Zhuhai team yachts as they start the 40,000 nautical mile ocean racing adventure.

The Clipper 2019-20 Race is the biggest yet in terms of Chinese involvement with all of the Chinese Partners both featuring as a Host Port and a Team Partner.

St. Katharine Docks is the only marina in Central London and boasts a sought after location nestled close to some of the capital city's most famous landmarks of the Tower of London and Tower Bridge.

The eleven strong fleet of 70-foot ocean racing yachts will be berthed in the docks' Center Basin for a week-long event from 24 August, before they depart for their 40,000 nautical mile circumnavigation on September 1.

This will be the third time the global sailing event's Race Start has been set here and for international and British crew alike, this will be a special place to sail from.

Qingdao, the longest-serving Host Port and Team Partner in the history of the Clipper Race, broke its own records when its team entry finished third overall in the last edition. Eager for more success in its eighth race campaign, Qingdao will be led by 32-year-old British Skipper Chris Brooks.

The 26-year-old Scottish yachtsman Seamus Kellock, who is the youngest among the eleven skippers will be at the helm for team Visit Sanya, the winner of the pervious Clipper Race. 52-year-old South African sailor Nick Leggatt, who has circumnavigated the globe three times and set five world speed sailing records, will skipper the Zhuhai team in its debut entry in the global sailing event.

A record 48 Ambassador Crews for the cities of Sanya, Zhuhai, and Qingdao are training to be Ocean Racers and will promote their three Chinese cities around the world.

The Clipper Race is one of the greatest ocean adventures on the planet. Founded in 1996 by Sir Robin Knox-Johnston, who last month celebrated the 50th year anniversary since becoming the first person to sail solo and non-stop around the world, it is the only event of its kind for non-professional sailors.

Taking almost a year to complete, the Clipper Race consists of eleven teams, each made up of a skipper, a mate, and a crew who come from all over the globe and different walks of life, competing against each other on the world's largest matched fleet of 70-foot ocean racing yachts.
