The UK capital has waved off the crews
of the world's longest ocean race as they
started their 40,000 mile adventure from
Crowds estimated at more than
120,000 lined the banks of the Thames to
cheer on the colourful pageant to mark
the start of the Clipper 2013-14 Round the
World Yacht Race.
The fleet of twelve 70ft ocean racing
yachts and a flotilla of support vessels,
spectator boats and well-wishers
participated in a spectacular parade with
Tower Bridge lifting to salute the crews
who will face the ultimate endurance test.
Legendary British yachtsman, Clipper
Race Founder and Chairman, Sir Robin
Knox-Johnston said: "It is wonderful to
see these gutsy people set off on one of
the greatest adventures left on the planet.
"Departing from the iconic Tower
Bridge, in the British capital London, is
something really special for the crews
and skippers who have been building up
to this moment for months.
"To see them return to London as
accomplished circumnavigators in 11
months time will be a special moment."
The armada was joined by a paddleship
steamer, pilot boats, police boats, RIBs,
spectator boats and other pleasure craft
as Britain waved off the 270 crew sailing
from London to Rio de Janeiro on Leg 1.
It is the first time London has hosted
the Clipper Race and is 40 years since the
Thames last featured a round the world
The fleet will not be returning until
July 2014 after a total of 670 crew race
40,000 miles and visit 16 ports on six
Designed to provide everyone --
regardless of sailing experience -- the
chance to race across oceans and
taste the exhilaration of completing a
circumnavigation, the Clipper Race has
turned over 3,500 novices into ocean racers
since its inception in 1995.
Everyone from teachers to sports stars,
professionals, lorry drivers, nurses, film
directors and more, team together to take
on the world's toughest sailing conditions.
Skippered by a professional yachtsman,
each team will battle to complete eight
different legs over eleven months, all vying
for the overall top prize.
The race officially started offshore at
Southend on 2 September with a short
sprint to Brest, France before sailing on to
2016 Olympic host city. The first leg of the
Clipper Race ends in Marina da Gloria, Rio
de Janeiro, the venue for the 2016 Olympic
They then continue on via South
Africa, Western Australia, Sydney
(including the world famous Sydney-
Hobart Race), Brisbane, Singapore,
China, San Francisco, Panama, Jamaica,
New York, Derry Londonderry and the
Netherlands before returning to London's
St Katharine Docks for Race Finish in
