The first entrant boat leaves MDL’s Ocean Village Marina, Southampton, at 09:30 on Sunday 10th September. Boats will depart at 5-minute intervals and make their way along Southampton water.

The yachts will cross the Royal Yacht Squadron start line, Cowes, at 13:00 before circumnavigating the globe.

The start will be broadcast simultaneously LIVE on OGR YouTube and OGR Facebook.

Viewing of the start line can be seen from the beaches in Gurnard, Isle of Wight or Lepe Beach in the New Forest.

Be ready to follow this epic adventure not seen in 30 years!

‘Ordinary’ sailors compete with sextants and paper charts, amateurs young and old, all chasing dreams. It’s a return to slower times without satellites, without GPS, sailing classic yachts on life-defining adventures around Cape Horn. A simple display of what courage, passion and the human spirit can achieve.
