Clipper Race will once again be using TIMEZERO to race around the world for 2017-18

The Clipper Race is an around the world race with 12 completely identical 70 ft. yachts, raced by 12 professional Skippers. The unique factor is that the crew is not a professional outfit but a mix of recreational sailors and complete novices who dream of completing an around the world voyage. With speeds reaching up to 35 knots, the boats pack a punch and with TIMEZERO software on board, we look forward to seeing just how it gets used for this edition in video edits and articles to come.

Putting theory into practice: Organizing the Spi West-France Regatta with Gilles Bricout

Gilles Bricout is one of the Race Committee members for the Spi West-France 2017. We got in touch with Gilles to find out why TIMEZERO helps in both preparing and in real-time to ensure the smooth running of the race.
