The Clipper Round the World Race has been going on since last year, and unfortunately, we’ve neglected to cover it much. The fleet are currently sailing a 5600 nm leg from Qingdao, China to Oakland, California. Currently in the 20th day of racing, the ten boat fleet is compacted between 39°-41° north latitude and 152°-159° west longitude. Arrival is expected into Oakland in the next two weeks.
After Oakland, the boats will head south to Panama before returning to the United States, this time New York City, in June.
