Webb invited to take on trip of a lifetime
LOCAL yacht enthusiast Jacqui Webb has been invited to join the trip of a lifetime when she takes part in the 2019-20 Clipper Round the World race.
Spanning over 40,000 nautical miles and taking almost a year to complete, the Clipper is the world’s biggest round-the-world ocean race and is regarded as one of the toughest endurance challenges on the planet.
The sailors will be racing on the Clipper 70 yacht which has been proven to be faster and more dynamic than previous Clipper Yachts after breaking speed records of 35 knots.
The Clipper Round the World race will have 11 70-foot (21.3m) yachts, which make up one of the world’s largest fleets of ocean racing yachts.
