Laura Ayers, Head of Partnership for Clipper Race, said the All Access Tour will allow people to “meet the characters and hear about the Ocean Race.”

She states: “For those who can’t be in Bermuda, it’s a great opportunity to take part in the race and get a little better understanding of it.”

Physical tours run daily from 1 pm to 7 pm, allowing people to experience the “feel, feel and smell of a yacht” and the limited living space of a clipper race winner. Visit Sanya, China on Wednesday, WTC Logistics on Thursday and Qingdao on Friday. All boats are at the Royal Bermuda Yacht Club.

The Clipper 70 physical tour will also include a group of 20-40 students aged 6-15 from 18 local schools.

Ayers added: “It’s all about inspiring the next generation, and showing clipper racing is what everyday people do extraordinarily.

“Hopefully, these tours can inspire kids to think,” Someday this might be me, “or at least get on the water and become more active.

“We want people to realize that sailing is not necessarily an elitist sport. Especially in island nations like Bermuda, we want people to be involved in water.”
