The biggest round the world yacht race is returning to Fremantle!
Welcome the Clipper Race crew and twelve 70-foot ocean racing yachts as they arrive at the Fremantle Sailing Club following their 4,754 nautical mile race across the Southern Ocean.
Returning to Fremantle for the first time since 2005, the stopover in November will be the first taste of Australia for the twelve Clipper Race teams, who started their epic adventure in Liverpool, UK, on August 20.
A highlight will be the open boat tours; a chance for the public to step on board and see what it takes to race in the ultimate ocean adventure.
The Clipper Round the World Yacht Race is raced by people like you. More than 700 people from all walks of life and representing 41 different nationalities are taking part in the 40,000 nautical mile, eleven month race around the globe.
The Clipper Race yachts will start arriving in Fremantle from November 21 and will be berthed at the beautiful Fremantle Sailing Club until the race to Sydney begins on Saturday 2 December.
