Following a grueling selection process, the eleven professional skippers who, with over a million miles of experience between them, will be leading teams in the 2019-20 Clipper Round the World Yacht Race are presented.

The newly appointed Clipper Race Skippers, who have a combined total of 1,312,300nm in their log books, hail from the UK, South Africa and Spain and bring a vast range of experience to the roles.

Nick Leggatt, 52, (Cape Town) already has three circumnavigations under his belt; Chris Brooks, 33, (Westcliff-on-Sea, Essex) is a high-performance racer with a 95 per cent podium success rate; Josh Stickland, 31, (Southampton, Hampshire) started his sailing career as a teenager through a Prince’s Trust bursary; Ben Keitch, 42, (Eastbourne, Sussex) spent 18 months with the British Antarctic Survey, and Seumas Kellock, 26, (Edinburgh, Scotland) is a former Clipper Race Crew member whose skills were so impressive he has returned to the global sailing event as a Race Skipper.
