Clipper Race Organising Committee:

The Philippines Government has announced an enhanced community quarantine which has been put in place for the island of Luzon, where Subic Bay is located.

The Clipper Race fleet arrived into Subic Bay yesterday and the crew have been held at the Subic Bay Yacht Club, awaiting quarantine clearance.

We are currently working to establish the implications for the Clipper Race.

This is a developing situation and we are working hard to get clarity on what this means for Race Crew and for the upcoming race and beyond.

The health of our crew, supporters and staff is our highest priority and all decisions will be made with this as our main focus.

We are dealing with this in real time and will respond to all queries and questions in due course. Please bear with us and we thank you for your patience and understanding during this challenging time.
