Carlyle Sailing Association Event: (Registration Required)
Simon duBois, an accountant from Montreal put his career on hold to take on the adventure challenge of a lifetime and become a circumnavigator in the Clipper 2017-18 Round the World Yacht Race. He will share his story about why and how he was able to embark on such a courageous feat – and share his insight about life onboard a stripped out 70-foot ocean racing yacht in the harshest of conditions.
The Clipper Round the World Yacht Race is one of the biggest challenges of the natural world and an endurance test like no other.
Divided into eight legs and between 13 and 16 individual races, you can choose to complete the full circumnavigation or select individual legs.
It is the only race in the world where the organizers supply a fleet of eleven identical racing yachts, each with a fully qualified skipper and first mate to safely guide the crew.
Normally the domain of seasoned pros, this supreme challenge is taken on by ordinary, everyday people. Having completed a rigorous training course, participants are suited and booted in the latest extreme protection gear to commence the race of their lives – an unparalleled challenge where taxi drivers rub shoulders with chief executives, vicars mix with housewives, students work alongside bankers, and engineers team up with rugby players.
Open to ALL. (CSA Members $20, Non Members $30, 18 and younger FREE)
