Golden Globe Race

A challenge like none other. A race created for the history books.

 

In contrast to the current professional world of elite ocean racing, the Golden Globe Race travels back to a time known as the ‘Golden Age’ of solo sailing. A race with sturdy 24ft to 32ft boats which carry no computers, GPS, satellite phone nor water-maker, and the challenge is completed with no outside assistance or aid of modern-day shore-based weather routing advice.

 

The skipper only uses a wind-up chronometer and a barograph to face the world alone and catches rainwater to survive.
