Clipper Ventures was founded by Sir Robin Knox-Johnston in 1995. It organizes the bi-annual clipper race around the world. In the 2005/6 race, 10 yachts are participating. To compete, crew members must be over 18 years old and fit and healthy. There is no upper age limit to the race and so far the oldest circumnavigator has been 66 years old. Some 40% of our crews have been female to date and the sailing ability throughout the fleet has tended to be about a 50/50 split of crew who have previous experience and those who have no prior experience before joining the Clipper training. Sailing ability does not affect our selection of crew…‘no experience necessary!’
