OV Competing in Clipper Round the World Race

We are delighted to report that OV George Blakeway (H 76-86) is competing in the 2019 Clipper Round the World Race for the Ha Long Bay, Viet Nam team. Starting in London on 1st September, the 40,000 nautical mile race around the world on a 70-foot ocean racing yacht is a real feat of endurance taking approximately 11 months to complete. Each boat is identical and the organisers ensure each team has a fully qualified skipper and first mate on board to keep the crews safe.

George says, “We’ve just completed the first race to Portugal and about to start the second to Uruguay- about 7,000 miles and 30 days sailing.”

Currently the team are in 7th position and we look forward to hearing more as the race continues. Good luck George and team!
