SEUMAS Kellock, 26, from Edinburgh is set to circumnavigate the world’s oceans for a second time in two years, after being selected as a skipper in the Clipper 2019-20 Round the World Yacht Race, which begins in the UK this summer.

Following a competitive worldwide search and on the water trial, Seumas was one of the 11 selected to lead a team of non-professionals aboard a 70ft ocean yacht in the 40,000 nautical mile, 11 month ocean adventure. In the lead up to the start of the race, Seumas will be tasked with training his amateur crew through four levels of rigorous drills before setting sail and guiding them in an experience of a lifetime.

Seamus said: ‘I couldn’t be prouder to be one of the 11 skippers for the Clipper 2019-20 Race. It is a dream come true and I can’t wait to go round the world for a second time.’
