Around The World Flight or Clipper Around The World Ocean Race? Registration For 09/10 Now Open

If you like your travel a little more extreme than an around the world flight with Quantas, why not sign up for the Clipper Ocean Race 09/10? It's the trip and challenge of a lifetime. And because this is the only around the world boat race that allows novices to enter, hairdressers, piano teachers or students have as much chance as the next of getting accepted onto a Clipper team. Full training is provided.

The options
Race for a week, individual legs or complete a circumnavigation

The route
Setting off from the Humber, UK on 13th September 2009 and visiting 14 worldwide port stopovers over the 10 months voyage, this really supersedes the stock itineraries that high street travel agenst put together everyday. You'll round the Cape of Good Hope, race to Australia and sail the Panama Canal. There's more to brave than the backpacker hostels of Bangkok as you take on the icy of the North Pacific and then the heat of the tropics.

The latest stopover to be announced is California, following the leg from China.

Clipper Crews are been recruited now for 2009/10
