This December the 69th Rolex Sydney Hobart Yacht Race will commence and Sir Robin Knox-Johnston will be taking part on one of his Clipper 68 yachts.

The Clipper Race founder and chairman will navigate in the Australian offshore classic race on one of two Clipper 68 yachts competing and will race against his fleet of 12 brand new Clipper 70 yachts and their amateur crews currently circumnavigating the world.

The race starts on 26 December 2013 from the Cruising Yacht Club of Australia in Sydney.

'It was an irresistible challenge to enter for a second time,' commented Sir Robin. 'I am looking forward to being a navigator on one of our 68s which have completed four global circumnavigations and will form a new training and events base in Sydney to expand our presence in Australia.'

On behalf of the RSHYR, the Cruising Yacht Club of Australia Commodore Howard Piggott said: 'The Club is also pleased to welcome back Sir Robin Knox-Johnston, founder of the Clipper Round the World Yacht Race and a competitor in the 2010 race on board Titania of Cowes. His presence will undoubtedly lead to spirited racing in the now 14 strong Clipper Race fleet and certainly add colour to our race.'

There are still places available to race on one of the two Clipper 68s in this classic race for those with some sailing experience. For enquiries, contact Emma Eason. Telephone +44 023 92 526 000/email eeason@clipper-ventures.com.
