Based on research conducted on the Clipper Round the World Yacht Race, Clipper Events has teamed up with Mission Performance to transfer insights and performance lessons from the environments encountered at sea. These insights have been turned into a learning and development programme for business groups comprising four main themes: leadership communications; coaching; high performance team development and leadership.

Speaking about the new partnership, Clipper Events manager, Emma Eason said: "We have seen the power and transformational nature of participation in ocean racing over the years on the biennial Clipper Race, which has trained over 4,000 novices and non-professional sailors. We have captured some of that in day-sailing opportunities and Mission Performance has studied how to translate the lessons from the hostile ocean environment to challenging business situations for organisations and individuals."

Mission Performance managing director Rob Lewis said that team spirit was a ‘a rarity’ in many of the businesses he worked with. "We can transform the way people see themselves and others, and make different decisions and get different results. We want to share as many lessons that it presents with businesses through the partnership with Clipper Race and Clipper Events and the new L&D programmes on offer."
