Clipper Ventures and Global Medical Emergency Support Partner Launch New Business



Clipper Ventures Plc and its Global Medical Emergency Support Partner, PRAXES Medical Group, are launching a new joint venture which arose from their partnership in the last edition of the Clipper Race.

The new service ClipperTelemed+™ will provide fast emergency and general medical support from its doctors to those on yachts, superyachts and commercial ships around the world. Custom medical kits and equipment will also be marketed as part of a complete medical support service.


The joint venture arose out of PRAXES’s highly successful fleet sponsorship in the Clipper 2013-14 Round the World Yacht Race. That partnership has led to a significant increase in exposure for the Canadian company’s global medical services.


Clipper Race Founder and Chairman Sir Robin Knox-Johnston, the first man to sail solo, nonstop, around the world in 1968/9, said: “We are pleased to launch this new joint venture. It is a result of our success as partners in the last edition of the race. 

 “Top quality medical advice will now be available for other ships 24/7, through the use of modern technology. This will give peace of mind for the company or ship owner, crew, family and guests. “ClipperTelemed+™ doctors have specific telemedicine training and are highly experienced in providing remote advice at sea. We want to offer the same support service that we use to other mariners.”


As part of the new service ClipperTelemed+™ is also looking for a Business Development Manager to develop the market for medical support and medical kits in the yachting and commercial shipping markets.

Paving the Way to Cleaner Boating – How a Commitment to Reducing our Environmental Impact is Inspiring Cleaner Boating in Ontario

By Dave Rozycki

Over the past seven decades, Ontario’s marina industry has developed alongside some of Canada’s largest freshwater lakes. Boaters have been able to enjoy the beautiful scenery and create lasting memories on the water, with certain marinas dating back to the 1960s. As we reflect on this rich history, we can begin to see trends in how our footprint may have had an effect on the environment, in not-so-positive ways. However, by embracing innovative solutions and adopting sustainable practices, both marinas and boaters hold the key to preserving and enhancing the quality of our lakes and marine life for generations to come.
