The race ended in 2008
Three of the clippers race down the River Mersey to the finish line on a grey morning in July. After over 35,000 miles the ten clippers returned to Liverpool and the welcome from the thousands of people on the river and the dock sides. These three are the Glasgow Clipper, Singapore Clipper and Western Australia Clipper.
The morning started off grey and wet, waiting in the rain for over an hour to board the Royal Iris of the Mersey to sail out and greet the clippers, during the three hour voyage we had heavy rain, thunder and lightning, drizzle, patches of mist and finally the sun breaking through. All in all, a changeable day on the river.
