Mission Performance Limited, Clipper Ventures Official Learning and Development Partner and first time Team Sponsors of the Clipper Race, officially named their yacht entry yesterday. The yacht is one of the new state of the art fleet of ocean racers debuting in the latest edition of the Clipper Round the World Yacht Race.

The founder and chairman of the Clipper Race, Sir Robin Knox-Johnston joined Corporal Paul Vice, Military Cross, Royal Marines and Founding Directors of Mission Performance, Rob Lewis and Christiaan Mcleod, to christen the 70ft ocean racer, Mission Performance, which is competing in the Clipper 13-14 Race.

Paul Vice represents the Royal Marines Charitable Trust Fund (RMCTF). Mission Performance are supporting the trust in its efforts to raise six million pounds by 2014. This money will enable the charity to deliver a range of objectives, one of which is to support wounded and injured Royal Marines making their transition into civilian life.

Sir Robin Knox-Johnston, Clipper Race Founder and Chairman said: 'I am very proud to launch the first ever Mission Performance team yacht. Mission Performance now have a strong association with the Royal Marines, an organisation I know and respect immensely. If they can instil even a fraction of the camaraderie, professionalism, and determination of the Royal Marines I have experienced, into the culture of their team, they will certainly be a force to be reckoned with.'
