PR – Adventure Travel
Our Co-Founder Matt recently got asked by Adventure Travel Magazine to share his experience of sailing around the world with Clipper Around the World.
Matt left his corporate London life back in August 2015 to sail 50,000+ nautical miles in 11 months around the world. With no previous sailing experience necessary, teams of around 18 embarked on their journey in London on twelve 70-foot ocean racing yachts. Ready for an adventure of a lifetime. Eight legs and 14 races later he’s come back to his home port in July 2016.

For the 24 hours before, the crew were constantly buffeted by a strong front heeling at 45 degrees and crashing upwind through and unsettled sea – in freezing temperatures. As we reached the continent, the weather suddenly lifted, the wind swinging in our favour as dawn and land approached.
Most dangerous moment? – …’
