The Golden Globe Race departs from Les Sables D’Olonne, France on July 1st 2018. Each contestant will sail solo, non-stop around the world, via the Great Capes of the Southern Ocean, returning to France approximately 9 months later.
Entrants are limited to sailing similar boats and equipment to what was available in the original race in the 1960's. That means sailing without any modern technology including GPS, computers and electronic autopilots.
Although this is a solo race, getting to the start line will require a huge effort from a large team of individuals.
If you are interested in getting involved in any way or have advice to offer, please do not hesitate to get in contact, we would be delighted to hear from you.
