The Clipper Round the World Yacht Race, the world’s most unique and longest ocean race, is officially unveiling its GREAT Britain yacht on Thursday 1 August in Trafalgar Square.

The impressively large 70ft long race boat will make a dramatic visual impact in the London landmark, where it will remain until Sunday evening 4 August, allowing race enthusiasts a rare opportunity to get a close encounter with a new Clipper 70 ocean racer out of the water.

The Clipper Race is the world’s longest ocean race founded by British yachting icon Sir Robin Knox-Johnston, the first man to sail solo, non-stop around the world.

The only event of its type, the race offers anyone the opportunity to join the adventure and circumnavigate the world in this eleven-month marathon. The Clipper Round the World Yacht Race 2013-14 starts Sunday 1 September from St Katharine Docks, London, and will return almost a year later after completing 40,000 miles of ocean in 15 races visiting 13 countries with one winner.
