On July 29 (British local time), Visit Sanya completed the final race of the 2019-2020 Clipper Round the World Yacht Race, which started from Londonderry, Northern Ireland and ended in London, the United Kingdom. Visit Sanya placed sixth in the final race, and ranked sixth in the final rankings.

Visit Sanya's trips around the world to Portugal, Uruguay, South Africa and Australia started on Sept 1, 2019. The race was suspended in the Philippines for two years due to the global COVID-19 pandemic and resumed in March, 2022. Then it sailed to the United States, Panama, Bermuda, Northern Ireland and finally returned to Great Britain. The 47,000-nautical-mile voyage, taking nearly three years, is the longest lasting competition in the history of the Clipper Race.
