Southampton is preparing to host the finale of one of the world’s foremost sailing events, the Clipper Round the World Yacht Race, with a day of celebration being planned at the city’s Ocean Village Marina.
Billed as the longest race of its kind in the world, the epic 40,000 mile journey will come to an end in Southampton on Sunday 22nd July, with organisers promising a fun-filled day of activities that all those attending are sure to enjoy. With entertainment starting at 12PM, the event will culminate with the victorious returning team arriving back at the marina and reuniting with their families and friends after eleven long months at sea.
The Clipper race is celebrating its 15th anniversary this year, so proceedings are expected to be even more exciting than usual.
