Clipper Round the World Yacht Race and Unicef
Unicef and the Clipper Race are working together to make a safer world for children. Clipper Race crews are taking on one of the greatest challenges on Earth, testing their wits, skills and courage in an endurance race across the toughest oceans.

At the same time children around the world are experiencing even more dangerous challenges. They’re facing violence, disease, hunger and the chaos of war and disaster. Millions of children are suffering and dying needlessly. This is wrong and the Clipper Race is helping Unicef to change it.
