Real adventure, fun racing, serious challenge and unmatched style

1 November 2021 marked the start of an extraordinary first ever Globe 5.80 Transat (G580T), a single-handed solo race across the Atlantic in 19ft (5.8m) home-built plywood yachts.

The idea of creating this new mini class of yacht, was launched in March 2020. The G580T was announced at the same time and builders have been creating their adventure ocean racing Globe 5.80 yachts in garages, tents and backyards ever since.
