“Every entry in the Clipper 13-14 Race will be doing all they can to claim the first podium position on the new Clipper 70, and I feel very reassured that SeaPro will be there to guide them on their way.”
Euronav’s managing director Dr Brian Morris added: “The team at Euronav are very proud to be supporting the Clipper Round the World Yacht Race for the eleventh consecutive year.
“The crew competing in the Clipper 13-14 Race will take on some of the most demanding oceans in the world and SeaPro navigation software will be there to show them the way.”
