The Clipper Race is the longest ocean race in the world. Also known as one of the most challenging endurance rages, it is the only sporting event of its type for amateur sailors. 12 teams race on a checked fleet of superposable Clipper 70s, taking around a year to finish their circumnavigation.
Having led Old Pulteney team over forty thousand nautical miles across the world, captian Patrick van der Zijden is looking ahead to donning his kilt again for this occasion. He told that it would be really great moment sail the Old Pulteney to Scotland for their 1st visit.
They sailed across the top of the nation in the final leg of the race but never had the scope to stop. He enjoyed the excellent hospitality of their Scottish sponsors across the world very much and he is now excited to experience it in person at the Scotland Boat Show.
