THE RACE

The Golden Globe Race departs from Falmouth, England on June 16th 2018. Each contestant will sail solo, non-stop around the world, via the Great Capes of the Southern Ocean, returning to Falmouth 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.
