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. The award is open to teams regardless of their finishing position and the prize is a much coveted Stormhoek Social Spirit pennant to proudly display and widespread recognition across the fleet.

So far, the winners have included:

  • Race 1: Greenings
  • Race 2: PSP Logistics
  • Race 3: The Clipper Race Family
  • Race 4: Sanya Serenity Coast
  • Race 5: HotelPlanner.com
  • Race 6: Visit Seattle
  • Race 7: GREAT Britain
  • Race 8: Nasdaq
  • Race 9: Dare To Lead
The crew on board for Leg 7 have been sharing their experiences with those back home through Crew Diaries on the Clipper Race website. Let us know who you think has been demonstrating the best social spirit!

In order to nominate the team you would like to win the Stormhoek Social Spirit Award for Race 10, log on to the Stormhoek Wines Facebook page, submit your nomination and reason why. Nominations will close on Wednesday 23 May 2018.

(If you do not have Facebook, you can send your nomination by email to ).
