‘PSP Logistics’ 70-foot yacht
Official logistics partner for the Clipper 13-14 Round the World Yacht Race
PSP, well known for its sponsorship of the PSP Southampton Boat Show and already the official logistics partner for the Clipper 13-14 Round the World Yacht Race, PSP has handled logistics for the race for the previous two events as well as being a logistics consultant to the America's Cup.
The PSP Logistics yacht faces a gruelling journey through the world's oceans, calling at some of the most prestigious ports on the planet.
In this year's race, to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the Panama Canal, the leg from San Francisco to Panama will be called the ‘PSP Logistics Challenge’ and the winning team will be awarded the PSP Logistics trophy.
Frank Dixie, managing director of PSP, said, “We are vehemently passionate about the marine industry and the sport of sailing. We’ve admired the Clipper concept for years and relished every minute of being Official Logistics Partner. Now we’re even more involved in the race as a team sponsor. It's a once in a lifetime opportunity for the crew and our fantastic skipper Chris Hollis and we are hugely excited to be involved in it."
