The race pontoon for the Barcelona World Race was opened to the public yesterday, at 18 days before the two-handed race, non stop around the world starts on 31st December.
An extract of the BWR Web page saids that:
The Barcelona World Race is the first and only double-handed (two crew per boat), non-stop, round the world regatta. It is a lap of the globe starting and finishing in Barcelona (Spain). External assistance is permitted, although there are strict penalty regulations. This is an extreme sporting challenge and ocean adventure that puts human limits to the test.
I will be covering the event until the departure of the ships on December 31. Meanwhile, I will share with you some photos of the preliminary events, in order to create the mood for such an interesting competition. Please follow it by Please … don’t move
