Fine Progress of Yachting all Over the World

Among the most famous yacht races around the world are the Sunday Times Golden Globe Race, organized in 1968-1969 (the first yacht race around the world), Vendée Globe (initiated in 1989 by Philippe Jeantot), Global Challenge, The Race (organized in 2000 by Bruno Peyron), Oryx Quest (organized in 2005 with Qatar start), Volvo Ocean Race and Clipper Round the World Yacht Race.

The first navigation around the world belonged to the explorer Juan SebastiánElcano and the remaining members of Fernando Magellan’s crew who completed the voyage in 1522. Joshua Slocum completed the first man-made voyage in 1898.

Due to the continent’s configuration, water travel around the world includes the Antarctic mainland, sailing south of Cape Horn, Cape of Good Hope, and Leeuwin’s Head. Since 1918, Panama Channel is a navigation option. The trip to the East through the southern hemisphere is favored by the dominant currents, many yacht commanders preferring this route.

Clipper Round the World Race competition in full swing

  • The latest edition of the competition began on September 1, 2013, at St Katharine Docks, London, and yachts currently compete in Singapore Qingdao, China.
  • The Clipper Round the World Race was launched in 1995 by English sailor Robin Knox-Johnston, the first man to make the world round the water, without stopping, in 312 days between 14 June 1968 and 22 April 1969.
  • Together with William Ward, Sir Robin Knox-Johnston set up Clipper Ventures, the company that runs the race. Several directors joined the business with his development, but Knox-Johnston, along with Ward and Jeremy Knight, who joined in 1998, is the core of the leadership, and they are now the only executives.
  • The crew can enroll for a full race or for one or more segments. In the yacht race yachts are used lighter and faster than other competitions, and routes follow the predominant currents. Teams compete for the Times Clipper 2000 Crystal Trophy.

The duration of a competition is up to 12 months and from 1996 to 2002 it has been held for two years, then took a one-year break and started in 2005, 2007, 2009 and 2011.

The Latest Options Now

Since 1996, the Clipper Race has gathered more than 2,000 participants from different domains and sides of society, which has turned them into long-distance riders. Approximately half of them do not have navigation experience, and 40% are generally women. At the inaugural race, yachts did not have the names of sponsors. In 2000, the Times magazine became a sponsor and called the ‘Millennium Project’ competition. All these historical information and the modern ideas are now available in www.lidoisleyachtclub.org now.
