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.

 

Have you ever wondered how marine navigation software gets used by the pros to compete whilst circling the globe? Last edition, the Clipper Race crew got in touch with Mission Performance skipper Greg Miller to find out how the Clipper 70 Yachts are using our TIMEZERO software to give them the best possible chance of gaining an edge over the tough opposition.

In the interview, some of the themes that are discussed are the following:

  • Route planning from Qingdao, China to Seattle, USA
  • Routing Module
  • Clipper Race Polars
