Tactics, tactics, tactics. Inshore or offshore? Either way, the race south will be fast paced. With a few boats finishing within minutes of each other, it's never over 'til it's over.

Through the wonder of the Panama Canal, you rise through locks to the Gatun freshwater lake, then down the other side where the waters of the Atlantic face crews once again. During the next race, after you navigate the blue water of the Caribbean, you'll be amongst the first ever Clipper Race crew to race through the impressive Cozumel Reefs National Marine Park.

Challenges come from every direction on the last stretch into New York. Tropical heat, trade winds and thunderstorms are a common sight but as you moor close to Ground Zero, you will probably be the only people in the city to have arrived from the west coast by sea.
