    QINGDAO SAILING TEAM CELEBRATES SUCCESSFUL FINISH IN WORLD’S LONGEST, TOUGHEST OCEAN RACE

    青岛号赛队成功完成世界最长、最具挑战环球帆船航海赛事-克利伯2015-16赛季环球帆船赛 创历史最好赛绩

    After eleven months of racing the world’s oceans, the Qingdao team was greeted by thousands of spectators along the banks of London’s Thames River today as the team celebrated finishing the tenth and toughest edition of the Clipper Round the World Yacht Race.

    经过了11个月的环球航海行程,青岛号赛队在数以千计民众的欢呼声中成功返回到了伦敦泰晤士河的终点码头,顺利完成了世界上距离最长、最具挑战的克利伯环球帆船赛。

    Qingdao enjoyed two podium finishes during the 40,000 nautical mile circumnavigation which included an unforgettable visit to the team’s home port in March.

    青岛号赛队在本赛季克利伯环球帆船赛中,有两个赛程的比赛进入了前三甲,今年三月份的时候,克利伯船队也是第六次返回停靠在了青岛这座美丽的城市。

    Known as China’s Sailing City, Qingdao is the Clipper Race’s longest standing Team Sponsor and Host Port, with the tenth edition of the biennial challenge marking the sixth partnership between the two parties. The global race, which stops in 14 ports around the world, celebrates Qingdao’s rich sailing tradition which includes hosting the Beijing Olympic sailing events in 2008.

    有着‘帆船之都’美名的青岛市,是克利伯环球帆船赛为时最长的赛队赞助商和船队停靠港合作伙伴。青岛在已经举办过的十届比赛中,连续六届与克利伯帆船赛携手合作。这项全球性的帆船比赛在世界范围内14座港口城市停靠,其中就包括青岛站,青岛有着丰富的帆船文化和底蕴,这里曾经是2008年北京奥运会帆船比赛项目的举办地。

    Throughout the circumnavigation which began in London, UK, last August, at least two amateur sailors from Qingdao have joined the race for each of the eight legs, having been awarded a bursary by the Qingdao Committee.

    本赛季环球帆船比赛是去年八月在英国伦敦起航出发,八个赛段的比赛中,每一段都有有至少两名来自青岛的选手登上青岛号参加比赛角逐,这些选手都是通过由青岛方面组织的公开竞赛选拔的方式脱颖而出。

    After joining the team in New York in June, Qingdao crew member Wei Liu, 52, who raced across the Atlantic from the USA to Europe said: “As a member of the Qingdao Committee, it is a real privilege for me to finally join the Qingdao crew because I have worked on the Clipper Race partnership with the city for over ten years now. It has been a very exciting experience and it has made me want to do more legs on the Clipper Race or even sail around the world.

    这其中就有今年六月份在纽约站接力上船比赛的青岛号船员刘卫,今年52岁的他顺利完成了从美国到欧洲的跨越大西洋段比赛,他这样说到:“作为青岛组委会的一名成员,能够作为青岛号的船员参加克利伯帆船赛,是我莫大的荣幸,因为过去十多年时间里,我也是亲自见证并参与到了青岛与克利伯帆船赛的合作当中。比赛的经历是非常激动人心的,不经意间激起了我想参加更多比赛的欲望,甚至还想要尝试下环球航海。”

    “I think the Qingdao crew is a good team, everyone has worked very hard. I tried my best to contribute and every morning on board I made a Chinese style breakfast for the crew which they really enjoyed. It has been a very good experience to share our culture with crew members from all over the world and also for me to learn about where they come from too.”

    ‘我认为青岛号赛队是一个非常优秀的团队,每个船员都很拼。比赛期间,我也是尽我所能,每天早上的时候给船员们亲自准备一份中式早餐,他们非常喜欢吃。比赛过程也是与各国船员一同分享和交流文化的经历,对于我来说也是一个学习的过程。’

    The Qingdao team finished in fifth place out of the twelve strong matched fleet of 70 foot racing yachts after a closely fought battle in the final stages of the circumnavigation. Skipper Bob Beggs said he’s very proud of his crew and how they handled the pressure.

    经过激烈的角逐,青岛号赛队最终以第五名的总成绩完成了本赛季的环球帆船比赛。船长Bob Beggs感慨说他为船员们的努力和应对压力时的表现感到自豪。青岛市体育局段茂洋副巡视员率领的青岛市政府代表团也在活动现场欢迎青岛号胜利完成比赛回归伦敦,在与青岛号赛队问候祝贺后,向青岛号船队赠送纪念品并合影留念。

    青岛市重大国际帆船赛事(节庆)活动组委会秘书长、青岛市体育局局长纪高尚发来贺电,“欣闻青岛号在2015-2016赛季克利伯环球帆船赛中,劈荆斩浪,发挥出色,顺利抵达英国伦敦圣凯瑟琳码头。在此,我谨代表青岛市重大国际帆船赛事(节庆)活动组委会,向青岛号全体船员们表示热烈的祝贺。你们载着九百多万青岛市民的关切与期望,以不畏艰难、勇于进取的航海精神,为青岛赢得了荣誉,为‘帆船之都’青岛续写了新的辉煌。 ”

    The second Qingdao ambassador on board for this stage of the race is Kejiang Xin. On having the chance to represent his city in the world’s longest ocean race, the 35 year old commented: “It has been an excellent experience to be part of the Qingdao crew and I feel very lucky to be part of this team. The partnership with the Clipper Race has given many people from Qingdao the chance to learn to sail and then cross the world’s oceans.

    凯旋赛段中另外一名代表青岛参赛的中国号船员是辛克江,现年35岁的他对于能够代表青岛参加比赛而感慨万分,他说到:“成为青岛号赛队的成员感觉很棒,我也感到非常的幸运,与克利伯帆船赛的合作给青岛的人们提供了学习帆船运动、参与环球航海赛事的机会。”

    Over 40,000 nautical miles long the Clipper Race, which started and finished in St Katharine Docks, is the longest, toughest ocean race on the planet and the only event of its kind which trains amateur crew to become ocean racers. 40 per cent of crew had no previous sailing experience before signing up, and only the Skipper on board is professional.

    总航程长达40,000海里的克利伯帆船赛是从英国伦敦的圣凯瑟琳码头起航,也是再次返回到这里凯旋,是世界范围内唯一一项针对非专业航海运动从事者开放的航海赛事,为他们提供专业的航海比赛培训,使他们有机会成为环球航海选手。40%的参赛者在参加比赛之前是没有过任何航海经历的,参加比赛的所有船长全部是职业航海选手。

    Throughout their almost year-long journey, which fewer people have completed than have climbed Mount Everest, the teams encountered the varying extremes of Mother Nature. From tropical storms and hurricane force winds, to searing heat and chilly conditions, the crew have sailed under clear starry nights, and witnessed the most incredible sunsets and sighted wildlife in some of the planet’s most remote locations.

    在将近一年的环球比赛时间里,只有少数船员参加并完成了全赛段环球的比赛,这个数字要比登顶过珠峰的人数还少,比赛过程中,船员们将会遇到大自然很多极端天气情况,这其中包括了热带风暴、飓风、酷热、寒冷等等,当然了,时不时的也会有见证美景和海洋动物的机会:清澈透亮的星空、美丽的海上日出和日落、海豚相伴等等。

    The teams compete on board the world’s largest matched fleet of racing yachts which were manufactured in Qingdao ahead of the previous race edition, so the twelve boats have now completed their second circumnavigation.

    参赛团队统一驾乘的是世界范围内规模最大的统一船型船队,这些比赛帆船是上一赛季比赛开始前在青岛制造生产的,目前,该船队已经服役完成了两个赛季的环球比赛。

    The Clipper Race was founded by legendary sailor Sir Robin Knox-Johnston, the first man to sail solo, non-stop round the world in 1968-69, to allow anyone, regardless of previous sailing experience the chance to experience the thrill of ocean racing.

    克利伯帆船是由传奇式航海人士罗宾.诺克斯-约翰斯顿爵士所创办,罗宾爵士在1968-69年期间,成功的完成了单人不间断环球航海航行,成为了完成此举的世界第一人,克利伯帆船是创办的初衷就是为了让普通的人们都有机会参与航海运动,感受航海运动的独特魅力。

    “This is the second outing of our third generation Clipper 70 fleet of ocean racers which were made in Qingdao and they have proved themselves as sturdy and reliable in extreme conditions. In addition, the teams on this edition of the race have sailed particularly hard which has resulted in some very fast times and tight finishes. It’s gone down to the final sprint in this 14-race series to determine the podium and overall positions.”

    “这已经是克利伯帆船赛第三代船型克利伯70尺第二次完成环球航海比赛了,这些青岛制造的大帆船通过极端的航海状况再一次验证了他们的可以信赖和牢固的质量。另外,本赛季比赛中,有些赛队的表现非常出色,创造出了更短的比赛完成时间和精彩激烈的冲刺跑,最后这赛程14的比赛得分将会决定本赛季总成绩的最终公布。”

    On the challenge the team completed, Sir Robin added: “This has been extremely tough. The conditions encountered in the Pacific Ocean after the teams left Qingdao were the worst we’ve seen in 20 years of running the race. I am proud of all of the crew; they have taken on all the world’s most challenging oceans and have been very resilient. They should be justly proud of themselves – whether crossing a single ocean or circumnavigating the entire planet. It is a remarkable achievement. The novices who set out eleven months ago have returned as seasoned sailors.

    赛队比赛完成后,罗宾爵士说到:“比赛一直是异常的艰难,从青岛站出发后,在太平洋上遇到的海况是我们比赛过去20年时间里遇到的最为险峻的,对于船员们勇敢的表现和迎接挑战的态度,我为他们感到自豪,他们也应该为自己而感到自豪,无论是参加一段比赛的还是环球全赛段的,对于他们来说,这是一次了不起的成就,十一个月前出发的菜鸟选手们,如今已经成为了经验丰富的老手。”

    A total of 690 crew members from 44 different countries took part in the Clipper 2015-16 Race, all of whom come from a wide variety of backgrounds, from nurses to firefighters, students to retirees, farmers, housewives, CEOs and surgeons. Aged 19 to 75 with no upper age limit enforced, crew can choose to compete either in the whole circumnavigation or one or more of its eight legs.

    在克利伯2015-16赛季环球帆船赛中,共有690名来自世界44多个国家和地区的选手参加了比赛,他们来自不同的职业背景,其中包括运输行业、学生、退休人员、农民、家庭主妇、CEO、外科大夫等等,年龄从19岁到75岁不等,参赛年龄没有上限,参赛船员也可以自行选择是全赛段比赛还是某个赛段的比赛。

    The Clipper 2015-16 Race departed London on 30 August 2015 and visited 14 different ports in ten different countries during the race series.
