Today's the day! Now and again Star Clipper and Royal Clipper meet in the Caribbean to share a photo opportunity and wind for a fabulous race. Guests crowd the decks and crew wave to one another as the ships clip the waves below.



It's a fabulous event and adds another element of beauty to an already gorgeous scene. Typically, in the Caribbean, this meeting takes place a few days into the journey. Star Clipper and Royal Clipper meet southwest of Iles des Saintes and sail alongside one another all the way to Cabrits, Dominica.







If winds permit racing takes place. While Royal Clipper does have an advantage with more sails, Star Clipper is lighter and can pull weight as well!
