Top Ten Videos: Clipper Round the World Yacht Race
Published on August 28th, 2013
The full exhilaration of ocean racing is felt as Visit Finland, an entry in the 2011-12 Clipper Round the World Yacht Race, surfs down a wave at 27 knots.
Heading toward the Race 9 finish line, the Golden Gate Bridge, the Finnish team experienced a huge surf after crossing the Pacific Ocean spending 30 days at sea in the race from Qingdao, China, to Oakland, San Francisco Bay.
The Pacific Leg is one of the toughest and most testing for amateur crews who spend over a month at sea in extreme conditions, crossing the International Date Line in the process.
