  • Clipper Round The World Yacht Race
    This is the only race in the world where the organisers supply the fleet of twelve identical, 70-foot, stripped down racing yachts each sponsored by a brand and manned with a fully-qualified skipper, employed to lead the crews safely around the globe. It's where taxi drivers rub shoulders with chief executives, vicars mix with housewives, students work alongside bankers, nurses work with vets and doctors team with rugby players. It's an experience that will change people's lives. Yet while the crews may be amateur, no one has told the ocean that. The race starts and finishes in London, England

The dramatic cliffs around the mouth of the River Dart (The Range) form a beautiful natural theatre with many vantage points from where the sailing races can be easily seen. Since 1822, The Port of Dartmouth Royal Regatta has grown extensively - it now offers an extraordinary mix of high-class competitive sailing and rowing, with a plethora of diverse social events and activities.

  • The Transat
    The Transat is the heir of the oldest singlehanded transatlantic race, the OSTAR, which shaped modern offshore racing. A 2,800 mile North Atlantic course renowned for wild depressions, icebergs and freezing fog. The last 12 editions of the race, held once every four years since 1960, have produced a rich history of triumph over adversity that has accumulated in record-breaking results. The first race was competed by just a handful of pioneering sailors including Francis Chichester and Blondie Hasler who coined the phrase: "One man, one boat, the ocean". There has been tragedy, dramatic rescues and exceptional drama since the race began. Over time The Transat, as it is known today, has evolved and now serves the professional end of offshore sailing. But there are few modern day races that can reflect on such a long and outstanding history.
