Race Training

Clipper Race Training takes the lessons from having raced more than more than three million miles and apply them to global training courses, constantly progressing and always striving to give Clipper Race crews the advantage to ensure they are trained to the highest level. 

There are four levels of intensive training, delivered at our headquarters in Hampshire, UK and our training hub in Sydney, Australia.

Working with our professional skippers and mates, crews live on board 68-foot and 70-foot yachts. From day one they build teams, learn the ropes, cook, clean and race. On top of that they’ll learn the basics of yacht maintenance and management, racing tactics, survival at sea and weather routing.  The most important skill they’ll learn is being part of a multi-disciplined high performance team that will function in every condition that Mother Nature can throw.
