Real adventure, fun racing, serious challenge and unmatched style
The Mini Globe Race is a single-handed round-the-world yacht race contested in Class Globe 5.80 yachts.
The first edition of the Mini Globe Race will commence on 24 October 2024. The proposed course is westward, starting and finishing in Europe, transiting the Panama Canal and rounding the Cape of Good Hope.
The race is expected to cover more than 26,000 miles and take 400 days to complete.
The Class Globe 5.80 yacht is designed as an affordable, round-the-world capable single-handed yacht that ships readily inside a standard 20 foot shipping container. Yacht plans have sold to more than 23 countries, and construction is underway around the world.
