    The Clipper Round the World Yacht Race is visiting Washington DC for the first time ever from June 17th – June 25th 2024! This iconic challenge, which takes place every two years, is on the lookout for the next cohort of adventurous sailors, yet no previous experience is required. Have you got what it takes?

    This event is for those eager to test their limits beyond belief and find out how they can take part in the next race edition from 2025-26. Come and hear about it from someone who has been there, stared Mother Nature in the eye and taken all she can muster. Hosted by Clipper Race Crew Alumni and Crew Recruitment Manager, Chris Harris.

    You will find out more about the selection process, training, the race, the fleet, stopovers, personal logistics and most importantly the race crew. You'll either walk away inspired or scared. One thing you won't be is bored.

    About the Clipper Round the World Yacht Race

    The Clipper Race is one of the biggest challenges of the natural world and an endurance test like no other. With no previous sailing experience necessary, this is a record breaking 40,000 nautical mile race around the world on a 70-foot ocean racing yacht. All that is asked of participants is a good level of fitness, an age over 18 - and a thirst for adventure into the unknown.

    Divided into eight legs and up to 16 individual races, over 700 race crew, representing over 50 nations and from all walks of life, complete the full circumnavigation or select individual legs. It is the only race in the world where the organisers supply a fleet of identical racing yachts, each with a fully qualified skipper to safely guide the crew. More information: https://www.clipperroundtheworld.com/

    Short biography

    Chris has a background in communications and public affairs and was based in London for 10 years before deciding that he needed a new adventure – taking part in the Clipper 2015-16 Race even though he had very little previous experience of sailing. He went on to become the global Communications Manager for the Clipper Race and is now responsible for recruiting new crew to have their own adventure of a lifetime. With over 400 crew already recruited for the 2025-26 edition, will you be next to join?
