Garmin has been named as the official marine electronics supplier for the Clipper Round the World race. Garmin will provide ‘a complete system of intuitive, robust navigational electronics’ for the race fleet during the 2013/14 and 2015/16 editions. “As a major global brand Garmin recognises the value in being associated with the world’s longest yacht race and we look forward to working with them over the coming months and years,” said Clipper race director Jonathan Bailey. “This exciting association with Clipper will bring added value to our brand and extend Garmin’s growing presence in the racing sector,” added Nigel Craine, marine sales manager for Garmin Europe Ltd.
This year’s Clipper race, which teams up members of the public and professional sailors, is already underway and will conclude in July 2012 having visited 15 ports around the world.
