Visit Seattle

Visit Seattle is skippered by 24-year-old Brit, Nikki Henderson, the youngest skipper in the 21-year history of the Clipper race. She was second fastest in the opening Ocean Sprint of the race and claimed fourth in Leg 2. She has also skippered in three ARC races across the Atlantic. Visit Seattle raced as GREAT Britain in the 2013 Rolex Sydney Hobart (59th overall/eighth in Division 1)  and as Clipper Telemed+ in 2015, finishing 47th overall, 12th in Division 2, and fourth in the Clipper Division. Crew for 2017 includes Simon Dubois, who is aiming to be the first Quebecois to race competitively around the world and Texan, Dr Tony Whittemore, who turned 70 on the first Clipper stopover in Punta del Este.
