The Clipper Round the World Yacht Race is coming to Sydney for the Sydney to Hobart, a leg of its epic 40,000 nautical mile race.

Each day of the fleet's stay in Sydney, one of the Clipper 70s will visit the Museum.


You're invited to one of four Members-Only tours.

Book early, as there are limited places: 10 people only per tour.


The Clipper Round the World Yacht Race

The Clipper Round the World Yacht Race is coming to Sydney to take part in the iconic Rolex Sydney Hobart Yacht Race, which forms part of the fleet’s 40,000 nautical mile, eleventh month race around the globe.

The Clipper 2017-18 Race begun in Liverpool, UK, on August 20, and will have crossed three oceans and notched up more than 17,000 nautical miles by the time it arrives in Sydney.

The brainchild of Sir Robin Knox-Johnston, the first person to sail solo non-stop around the world, the ultimate ocean adventure is now on its eleventh edition.

What makes the Clipper Race unique is that it is raced by people like you. More than 700 people from all walks life and representing 41 different nationalities are racing on one of the eleven 70 foot stripped-out ocean racing yachts, each of which is led by a professional Skipper, including Australian and ten-time RSHYR veteran Wendy Tuck.
