Daily Echo: Clipper crews just days from stage finish line Clipper crews just days from stage finish line

Crews are just days away from their next stop in an epic round the world journey.

Teams in the Clipper Round the World Race are on course to arrive in Den Helder in the Netherlands tomorrow or Friday.

However, organisers have warned that lighter winds mean they could arrive later.

The teams, ten of whom hail from Hampshire, left the port of Londonderry in Northern Ireland on Sunday amid a spectacular display by the Red Arrows.

The latest leg takes them on an 800-mile journey around Scotland and into the North Sea finishing in the Netherlands.

Following an eight-day break, the crews will then set sail for London.
