Clipper Yacht Race In Qingdao

China’s Sailing City entry, Qingdao Clipper, will be participating in the Clipper Round the World Yacht Race for the 6th consecutive time (2015-2016) making Shandong’s most popular coastal city the longest standing entry in the race’s history. The Clipper Race was started in 1995 by legendary yachtsman Sir Robin Knox-Johnston who was the first man to sail solo (non-stop) around the globe. The race enables ordinary people from different backgrounds the opportunity to experience ocean racing on a grand scale. Participants have the option to sail individual legs or the entire race around the world.
