Thereare many, good reasons, to participate in the Clipper Round The World Race, the round-the-world race in stages (where the crew pays to participate: 40,000 miles in 9 long stages with 14 destinations touched, 1 year or so of sailing), devised by Sir Robin Knox Johnston. This is a more than challenging regatta, a true school of the sea and life aboard twelve Clipper 70s (designed by the imaginative Tony Castro), capable of reaching even 35 knots of speed.
WELCOME ABOARD, MISS UNIVERSE!
But on the last leg (the one from New York to London at St. Katharine Docks, where the race started on August 30, 2015, but with stopovers in Derry, Northern Ireland, and Den Helder, the Netherlands) you’ll have one more reason to participate: Miss Universe of Great Britain, the beautiful television star Amy Willerton, will brave the Atlantic aboard the Garmin team.
A winner of numerous beauty pageants (Miss London 2012, Miss Universe 2013, Miss Wales etc…), she is certainly not afraid of the ocean even though she has never been on a sailboat.The 23-year-old is a sporty girl who has run the London Marathon, competed in several triathlons and even had a part in the acrobatic Russian Circus. Would you like to meet her? Invite her to dinner before plying the Atlantic with her? Apply to join the regatta! Currently the fleet is one step away from the stop over in Perth, Australia. There is still time to find a place!!!
