Clipper Round the World Race recruits crew

ADVERTISEMENT

The Clipper Round the World Yacht Race has started a new advertising campaign to attract non-seamen to participate as crew on one of the 12 yachts making the journey. The international crew recruitment campaign urges people to “achieve something remarkable” by swapping the tedium of their daily routine for the excitement of racing across some of the most challenging oceans.
“No experience necessary,” the press release states.
The Clipper Race is the world’s longest ocean race at 40,000 miles. Anyone 18 or older can apply. Selected crew members are put through three weeks of pre-race training.
The Clipper Race has invested in 12 brand new 70-foot yachts.
Crew can take on the full 40,000 miles circumnavigation, or one or more of eight legs. The race fleet takes almost a year to visit 15 ports of call on six continents.
