The magical city of Derry~Londonderry is gearing up for a LegenDerry Maritime Festival in association with the Clipper Round the World Yacht Race 2013/2014.  As one of the designated ports for the race, from June 21~29, the city will be transformed into an international marina to host the 12 Clipper Race yachts and race teams.

The 2013-2014 Clipper Race fleet includes the Derry~Londonderry~Doire entry skippered by the city’s own Sean McCarter accompanied by his LegenDerry crew, proud ambassadors for the city during an epic trip on the ocean waves.

As well as welcoming the fleet of the world’s longest ocean race, the festival will enable marine enthusiasts and visitors alike to enjoy a treasure trove of activities.

All of the seafaring action will be set to a spectacular backdrop of live music, street performances, concerts, fantastic food and celebratory events each and every day. To check out the full festival programme and to book your tickets or accommodation, check out
