Whitbread is back!
The Ocean Globe Race 2023 retro-event will celebrate the 50th anniversary of the first fully-crewed Round the World Race of 1973 (sponsored by Whitbread Breweries).
Only production yachts designed before 1988 of LOA 47-66ft and well proven construction will be eligible. There will be a maximum of 30 entrants and navigation will be limited to sextant paper plots with no satellite communications.
Starting on 10th September 2023, the race creates a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for ordinary sailors to follow the classic four-leg Europe-Africa-Australasia-S America-Europe route with three 2-3 week stopovers.
