Sir Robin Knox Johnston

During my recent trip to St Katherines Dock to welcome in the 2015/16 race I was delighted to meet our Clipper founder Sir Robin Knox Johnston. He was first person to sail single handed and non-stop around the world between 14th June 1968 and 22nd April 1969.The Clipper Round the World Yacht Race was conceived in 1995 by Sir Robin Knox-Johnston and together with William Ward, founded Clipper Ventures, a company that would run the race.
