Clipper Round the World Race information evenings - Christchurch

posted 15 Aug 2016, 14:18 by Christchurch Yacht Club

We are running a series of information evenings across Australia and New Zealand to recruit crew for our Round the World Yacht Race.  The Clipper Race is a record breaking 40,000 nautical mile race on a fleet of 12 matched 70-foot ocean racing yachts which pass through Australia on their circumnavigation.  We thought the race may be of interest to your members hence I am getting in touch.

 

We will be holding an information evening in Christchurch on the 14th of September and I was wondering if this was of interest and something you would like to promote to your members via a newsletter, your website, social media or other means?

 

I have included some suggested copy below which you could use or adapt to suit your members and a flyer to send as an attachment.  We also have printed posters (A4) which I can send out if you would like some to display in your club.

 

If you have any questions or require any additional  information then please get in touch. I look forward to hearing from you.

 

Best Wishes,

Samantha

 

On Wednesday the 14th of September at Christchurch RSA, Della Parsons will be running an information evening about the Clipper Round the World Yacht Race.  A circumnavigator and TV documentary director, Della will share her insight about those eager to test their limits beyond belief over 11 months and more than 40,000nM in the world’s longest yacht race.

 

Come and hear about it from someone who has been there, stared Mother Nature in the eye and taken all she can muster. You will find out more about the selection process, training, the race, the fleet, stopovers, personal logistics and most importantly the race crew.  

 

Della will also be bringing the newly launched VR360º video, an immersive experience of the 2015-16 race that finished in July. You'll either walk away inspired or scared. One thing you won't be is bored.

 

Booking essential via Eventbrite or email OceanRacer@Clipper-Ventures.com to register your interest.
