The Ocean Globe Race


Recommended Posts

Umm correction, the Golden Globe Race (single-handed) GGR2022 has just started. The Ocean Globe Race (fully crewed) starts next year.  Can you change the title for this thread?

Auckland confirmed to host vintage round the world yacht race

Auckland has been confirmed as one of three stopover ports for the 2023 Ocean Globe Race that will trace the route of the original 1973 round the world race and feature some of the big boats that dominated the event.

The fleet will be in Auckland over the new year holiday period with the demanding third leg across the Southern Ocean set to start from the City of Sails on January 7, 2024.

Excellent news and maybe we can have some parties like the old Whitbread ones 🤪 Only last week I was talking about this at the squadron and they seemed to know nothing.
