Costa Blanca, Spain

First Ocean Race Europe stopping in Alicante

The first Ocean Race Europe takes place this year, and they are stopping at Alicante!

The inaugural edition of The Ocean Race Europe, will start at the end of May 2021 from Lorient, France and finish in Genova, Italy in June, with stops in Cascais, Portugal, and Alicante, Spain along the way.

The Europe race is a new event, designed to showcase top-flight, fully-crewed, competitive ocean racing featuring the best international teams.

The Ocean Race Europe will engage with European citizens to enhance the ambitious green transition and showcase the power of Digital Transformation.

The Ocean Race Europe will see crew members from all over the world racing in foiling IMOCA 60s and one-design VO65s racing from the North Atlantic coast of Europe into the Mediterranean Sea, with each offshore leg to be scored equally. There will also be two coastal races in Cascais and Genoa which award bonus points to the top three finishers.

Maybe the CBYA can arrange to tour the boats again? Click HERE for more details.
