Clipper 07/08 Round the World Yacht Race


The Clipper 07/08 Round the World Yacht Race has just ended in Liverpool. The race is a 35,000, 14 stop, test of endurance with boats representing their city of origin.

South Africa was represented by 'Durban 2010', which finished sixth overall. The colourfully branded yacht, skippered by Durbanite Ricky Chalmers, proved to be an invaluable marketing tool for the city, keeping Durban in the international sporting spotlight for almost a year and affirming her title as 'Africa's Sporting and Events Capital.'
