With teams jostling for a podium position as they race off the coast of Mexico, it looks like Race 10: The Garmin American Challenge is much too close to call. And with one week left till the arrival window into Panama it is time to open up nominations for the Stormhoek Social Spirit Award.

The Stormhoek Social Spirit Award celebrates true team spirit and gives Clipper Race followers the chance to nominate the team they believe has shown real strength throughout each of the 13 individual races.

  • Race 5: HotelPlanner.com
  • Race 6: Visit Seattle
  • Race 7: GREAT Britain
  • Race 8: Nasdaq
