Rubicon 3’s original yacht and now loved the world over. Hummingbird and her extraordinary design took the sailing world by storm in 2013 and she has been on so many adventures then, to go with her three full circumnavigations when she was with the Clipper Round the World race. The Clipper 60s are one of the most seaworthy, practical and easy boats to sail and she has a special place in so many people’s hearts.

Current location

Where is Hummingbird?

Using Iridium satellite trackers, Rubicon 3 yachts transmit their position every 4-12 hours from anywhere in the world. There are occasionally some IT problems with the trackers on certain mobile devices. If you cannot see it
