With no one dying, no boats breaking of late, and nothing really special in their media output, we can be forgiven for forgetting the pay-as-you-go Clipper Race has been ‘raging’ for months, and as we speak, beginning its final points scoring leg.  Sir Robin’s pay-as-you-go crew are quietly getting their work done, training newbies whilst racing ’round the world on their heavy 70′ racer/cruisers.  The boat’s size and stability are two reasons we were a bit shocked by this knockdown-plus video from two days ago.

Very, very few sailors will ever find themselves actually inside a waterspout, and a huge thanks to Team GBR for sharing it with all of us.  Show up tomorrow (the 12th) in St. Katherine’s to check out the fleet.

We’re calling the “130 knot winds” reported by the Clipper Round The World Race ‘poetic license’, but there’s no doubt the Winnebago 70 fleet is balls deep into the Southern Ocean.  Here’s some near-death action from aboard Clipper 70 GREAT Britain, and we encourage you to check here for the skipper reports, and stay up to date with the thread.

Brian Carlin gets up close and personal with the rig of one of the new Clipper 70s – the big fleet sets off on the 2013-14 race in just a week.  They ain’t no ultralights, but this one looks pretty good from the top of the world!
