Exciting competition for Clipper Race
A leading foulie wear company is running a competition to win three places on legs of a round-the-world yacht race.
Henri-Lloyd and the GORE-TEX® Experience Tour are running the contest for places on the Clipper Round the World Yacht Race.
A spokeswoman said: ‘We are looking for three adventurous people with a passion for life and the will to succeed to take their place on one leg each of the race. The eleven month long race circumnavigates the globe in eight legs in total.’
The legs the winners will compete on are:
Leg 3 The Southern Ocean sleigh ride departs from South Africa sailing the Cape of Good Hope and through the Roaring Forties before arriving in Western Australia.
Leg 4 This leg takes you past another of the three Great Capes, Cape Leeuwin, then across three oceans as you sail from Western to Eastern Australia.
Leg 5 The Asia Pacific Challenge is the longest of the three legs taking the crew from the heat of a Southern Hemisphere summer up into the tropics and back across the Equator before arriving in Asia.
The prize not only includes the place on the crew, plus all travel and associated costs, but the lucky winners will also be kitted out in the latest Henri-Lloyd GORE-TEX® products.
As Official Technical Clothing Partner to the Clipper Round the World Yacht Race, Henri-Lloyd ensures that every crew member gains a deeper knowledge and understanding of how the right clothing system can significantly enhance comfort levels and improve their long term performance.
Once the application process has closed, a panel of experts will pick a shortlist of twelve candidates who will be invited to a selection day in Hampshire on the 9th and 10th of May, which will include their first experience of being onboard one of the new 70ft racing yachts.
Only once all of the finalists have been interviewed and assessed will the winners be announced. The three lucky winners will stay overnight to take part in the official Crew Allocation event where they will find out which crew they will be joining.
The winners will have to undertake three intensive practical Clipper Race training programmes, which prepare them to safely and competently face the challenge.
