Velux back Clipper Ventures again

Clipper Ventures PLC (UK) announced that the VELUX Group (Denmark) has
re-signed as title sponsor of the next VELUX 5 OCEANS race, the solo around
the world race in 2010-11.

VELUX was title sponsor of the last edition, which started and finished in Bilbao, Spain between October 2006 and May 2007. Won by Bernard Stamm, extreme conditions on leg one forced the withdrawal of Alex Thomson and Mike Golding.

The next edition of the race expects to once again incorporate stopovers in Australasia and the United States, with further details revealed by the end of this year.
