Turning the tide for ordinary sailors with a dream
"With so many of the beautiful yachts from previous Whitbreads being rescued and restored, it seems only fitting that we should race them around the world again! Count us in."
— Tracy Edwards MBE, MAIDEN
Following the hugely successful 50th anniversary Golden Globe Race in 2018, McIntyre Adventure is proud to announce a 50th Anniversary celebration of that first fully crewed round the world race.
The retro Ocean Globe Race (OGR) will take to the high seas in 2023, following the same route as the clipper ships and the inaugural 1973 Whitbread Race in similar affordable yachts.
The Ocean Globe Race is the future of accessible round the world ocean yacht racing for any sailor. The opportunity returns after nearly 30 years and is set to inspire and capture the imagination of sailors and passionate followers the world over.
