The race began in 2007
On Saturday the 16th September 2007 ten 20 Metre long Clippers set sail from Liverpool to race around the world, over 35,000 miles of sailing, calling in at 13 ports along the way. Seen here are the Jamaica, Qingdao and New York Clippers passing Wallesey on the way out of the River Mersey.
On Saturday 5th July 2008 the Clippers return to Liverpool to complete the race. Mersey Ferries are running a special cruise to greet them so another opportunity to get some pictures on the river. The weather forecast is heavy rain so it looks like it might be a difficult day for good pictures but you have to hope.
