The Clipper 70 is the third generation of one-design Clipper Round the World Yacht Race yachts debuted in the Clipper 2013-14 Race, proving to be faster and more dynamic than previous Clipper Race yachts, breaking speed records of 35 knots.
Our eleven strong 70-foot yachts make up world’s largest matched fleet of ocean racing yachts. Designed by renowned naval architect Tony Castro, they are the shining jewel in the Clipper Race crown and are perfectly adapted for participants with limited sailing experience.
The Clipper 70s design features twin helms, twin rudders, and a six-foot bowsprit, which allows the inclusion of three large asymmetric spinnakers and a suite of Yankee headsails, which combine to increase performance and boat speed in all weather conditions. The design provides total control in the heaviest of conditions, ensuring not only high speeds, but safety too.
