“I fulfilled a dream and it was awesome,” says Swiss circumnavigating crew member Dominique Hausser as he reflects on his Clipper Race adventure.
Next week, Dominique will be among 25 crew sharing their race experience at the Salon Nautique du Leman (Geneva Boat Show) from Friday 11 to Sunday 13 November at the Palexpo convention centre.
Tickets are free so come and visit us at our red Clipper Race dome, stand SN211 to discover more and learn how you too can step on board to race the world’s oceans.
“I had always wanted to sail around the world and my dream came true. The race was a year of sailing with fantastic people working together as a team and visiting wonderful places. Passion, patience, tenacity and generosity are words I learned the true meaning of during the race. I am looking forward to the Geneva Boat Show to share stories from my race and hopefully inspire others too,” adds Dominique, who will be joined by Clipper Race Recruitment Manager David Cusworth to explain the selection process, training, the race, the fleet, stopovers, personal logistics and, most importantly, the race crew. Visitors to the dome can also try out our virtual reality headset, providing a full 360 degree view on board a Clipper 70 racing yacht in the middle of the Atlantic.
The show will host 125 exhibitors and a variety of activities in celebration of all things sailing, from a 150m pool offering snorkelling to sailing, nautical inspired artwork, treasure hunts and guest speakers throughout the weekend.
