Spicy bully beef will be on offer at the Clipper Race start

A special sea-faring delicacy will be put to a nautical taste test to mark the opening of the Clipper Round the World Race Village at the historic Albert Dock, Liverpool on 16 September at 11.30.

Sir Robin Knox-Johnston – first man to sail solo, non-stop round the world – will prepare his famous ‘spicy bully beef” as the start of the race highlight.

The race village will feature nine marquees promoting the sights, sounds and tastes of some of the nations participating in the 05-06 Clipper Round the World Yacht Race, which begins at noon on Sunday, September 18. For more information, contact Helen Johnson, on (0151) 233 4032 or 07725 150 738.
