Clipper Round the World Yacht Race Returns to Seattle

After a two year wait, the Clipper 2019-20 Race officially restarted on March 24, 2022, from the Philippines and is expected to take 30 days, with 11 boats strong. The Clipper Race fleet is due to arrive in Seattle between April 16-21, 2022.The race across the mighty North Pacific will pose an extraordinary challenge, potentially with huge waves and extreme weather systems as teams race towards the Port of Seattle’s Bell Harbor Marina.
