85100 LES SABLES D'OLONNE
1968 - 2018: A new edition of the Golden Globe Race to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Sunday Times Golden Globe Challenge.
An old world tour, solo, without stopover, without assistance with the same means as in 1968!
A unique challenge, pure and hard: the return to the golden age of sailing alone. A tribute to the traditional values of sailing.
30 skippers in solo 26 registered on (4/10/17). 14 nationalities
The sailors will follow a very simple route: the boats will leave the port of Sables d'Olonne to go around the world by the five great capes and join the Sables d'Olonne again, without stopover.
