The Clipper Round the World Yacht Race is the world’s longest ocean race, where amateur sailors from over 40 countries race all or part of a 40,000 nautical mile global circuit.

The Sydney base offers training to Clipper Race crew and also to non-race crew who want to learn to sail on a big boat. Clipper Ventures Australia also offers corporate sailing events tailored to clients’ needs which provide stimulating, hand on opportunities for building relationships, inspiring teams, and for raising leadership performances outside the average meeting room environment.
