Ocean Clipper Race

On the start line of the clipper race

September 2nd 2013

Thames Leisure waved off the Ocean Clippers this weekend as they began their momentous trip around the world! William B followed the parading yachts as they motored into the Upper Pool to open Tower Bridge. The first leg will take in a sprint to Brest before sailing across the Atlantic to Rio. Follow their progress as the 670 crew travel 40,000 miles taking in 16 ports on 6 continents before returning to London next July on their website!

Our guests were thrilled to send them off – what a great success and Thames Leisure wishes them the best of luck with the voyage ahead. Check back regularly to see our latest special events on the Thames…
