Our highlight of the race will be when we welcome the yachts to Derry-Londonderry at the end of the transatlantic leg with the Clipper Homecoming Festival 29th June – 08th July.

The Clipper 11-12 International Yacht Race started from Southampton on the south coast of England on 31st July 2011. It is the only event in the world where people from all walks of life can take part in the challenge of a lifetime and race around the globe on stripped down ocean racing yachts. By the end of the year long voyage, the Derry-Londonderry yacht will have taken its crew, many of whom are local adventurers to Brazil, South Africa, China, Singapore, Australia, West and East Coast USA, Panama, Canada, Holland as well as our very own Derry-Londonderry; in what has been a thrilling and at times dramatic adventure!
See you at the Clipper Homecoming Festival....It will be Legenderry!!
