More round-the-world races are good and different! – this is, apparently, the motto of this summer. Month passes that was not announced to hold another world tour. And here’s another one.
The name of this race, as you already know – The Race Around. Decided to take her two promotional companies – Manuka Sports Event Management and 5 Oceans Sports Marketing. Enlisting emphasize the full support of the Board of Directors of the international Association Class40 class.
Yes, to participate in The Race Around will be the Class40 yachts. Association of the class believes that fans of the Class40 is clearly not enough big races. There are, of course, Route du Rhum from France to Guadeloupe, but it takes place every four years – and generally want something more ambitious.
That came up with The Race Around. The first circumnavigation of the start of the prologue in four years (so there is time to prepare) – in the late summer of 2023-th – in one of the cities of Northern Europe. The route is this: Lisbon – South Africa – New Zealand – Brazil. And finally, the finish – in the same city where it was launched. In General, the route is quite a classic.
It remains to add that the race is double – handed. That is, on the yacht the crew of two.
Can someone of the Russians that adventure might be interested in? For them – the website of the organizers –
