Clipper Dinner

Clipper Dining Event

Tuesday 15th of August 2017

at the Quayside Marina

Home of the Liverpool Yacht club

7:30pm for 8:00pm

Tickets - £40 per person inc. wine

Our president Sir Robin Knox – Johnson has invited members of Liverpool Yacht club to meet the yacht skippers and one member of crew from the prestigious round the world yacht race – the Clipper Race

The Clipper Race, now on its eleventh edition, is one of the biggest challenges of the natural world and an endurance test like no other.

With no previous sailing experience necessary, it’s a record breaking 40,000 nautical mile race around the world on a 70-foot ocean racing yacht.

The brainchild of Sir Robin Knox-Johnston, LYC president and the first person to sail solo non-stop around the world.

Twelve identical racing yachts, each with a fully qualified skipper compete in 14 to 16 races, over eight legs around the world.

It is these skippers, one other crew member, Sir Robin and his senior managers that we will have the opportunity to meet. This will be a dinner no “black ties” after all the yacht skippers will only have clothes for the race!

This is an opportunity to wish people well; to express our jealousy that we are not all going and to give our club the opportunity to host and talk with some superb athletes.

Kindred clubs have been asked to join us and Alistair Soane a past commodore and current RDYC commodore will be hosting a table or two from RYDC

The marina staff have been excellent in giving us first class help at a very reasonable price. £40 each including wine.

Please contact Richard Jarman directly at LYCCLIPPER@gmail.com with the number of places you would like to reserve.

Please support the links that have been formed again, with this prestigious event.
