new boat : Clipper 70 by Tony Castro

Most if not all have already heard about the clipper race, a race that give the chance of amateurs to experience the emotions of ocean crew races in fast and big Ocean racers.

Clipper Race - Clipper 13-14 Race Skippers

Well, the problem is that the old Clipper 68, a 2004 Ed Dubois design is already a dated design.

That has changed. Welcome to the new Clipper 70, a design by Toni Castro, the most known Portuguese NA:

Not a radical design but an adequate one, much more modern, faster and easier to sail downwind. Much more fun for the ones that will apply for a leg on this race, for sure:
