The Clipper Race Leg 6 update

Message from Clipper Race Organising Committee:

In light of the new US travel restrictions from the Schengen area within Europe, we are monitoring any potential implications for Race Crew on future legs of this race edition. As you will appreciate, this is very new information and we will provide updates should the restrictions be extended and the situation develop further.

The US Government currently requires all foreign travellers arriving into its country to have NOT been in a Schengen border-free country for a minimum of 14 days before their arrival into the US. This restriction comes into effect on 13 March and will initially be in place for 30 days.

Race 10 is still due to leave Subic Bay for Seattle on 21 March with an arrival window into Seattle from 19 to 24 April. The safety of all Clipper Race Crew, Supporters and Staff remains of paramount importance. Should future ports not be viable places for our fleet to stop, the race route, as we have needed to for Legs 5 and 6, will be amended.

We advise Race Crew on Legs 7 and 8 to delay making any new travel arrangements and when they do so, to book marine fares through ATPI as they can be changed if necessary.

This is an evolving situation but rest assured we are doing all we can to keep Clipper Race Crew, Supporters and Staff safe during this global outbreak.
