Building on over 45 years of tradition and heritage, The Ocean Race is the world’s premiere, fully-crewed, around the world race. Since the first Whitbread Round the World Race in 1973, through 20 years of the Volvo Ocean Race, this offshore classic has always attracted the world’s best sailors.
Now known as The Ocean Race, the next edition is set to start from Alicante, Spain in 2021, with two classes of boats: the fantastic, foiling IMOCA 60s and the one-design VO65s, which produced the closest race in history in the last edition.
To catch up on the latest developments and learn what’s been going on behind the scenes since the last race, join The Ocean Race for its online launch on March 21st at 1900 UTC.
