Since the start of the very first Whitbread Round the World Race in 1973, 12 races have been completed and to celebrate, legendary boats from any of the previous races are invited to join today’s sleek ocean racers for an extravaganza not ever seen before.
Legends boats will race the final leg at the same time as those vying for the winner’s trophy of the 13th edition of the Volvo Ocean Race, about 462 nautical miles from Gothenburg in Sweden to The Hague in The Netherlands, in June 2018.
Round the world racing was a very new and very brave idea in the seventies. Some considered it impossible, but there were many who wanted to do something adventurous and, over the years, the race has become more successful than ever could have been imagined.
A full schedule of Legends Race events will be arranged, both in Gothenburg at the start and in The Hague after the finish. Full information will be released as it becomes available, so stay tuned in or contact us by email on firstname.lastname@example.org
