Like the original Sunday Times Golden Globe Race in 1968, the 2018 Golden Globe Race is very simple. Depart Falmouth, England on June 14 and sail solo, non-stop around the world via the five Great Capes, and return to Falmouth, which was the start line and finish line for the 1968-9 race.

The actual event was started with nine contestants in the original event, with Sir Robin Knox-Johnston as the only ‘player’ to finish the race, and becoming the 1st person to sail single-handed as well as non-stop across the world.

Inaugural Round the Rocks Race to be in March

The very first Round the Rocks Race will offer a warm-up in advance of St. Thomas International Regatta 2016, to be held 25th to 27th March, in St. Thomas, US Virgin Islands. This is a 1 day independent event of St. Thomas International Regatta that features its very own point-to-point course across the St. John Island, break up scoring as well as special prize-giving.

Chuck Pessler, the director of the regatta, told that the sailors told that they want more racing and they were known for their pro race management. Put the two together it makes the great scope to offer a new one1day race. Those who do not want to or could not race are not penalized since scores in the Round the Rocks race does not count toward the St. Thomas International Regatta. This is only another way to sail in their lovely Unites States Virgin Islands waters and have yet another way to win.

As of now, entries include a trio of Gunboat 60s. These are Robert Alexanders Fault Tolerant, Stephen Cucchiaros Flow and Phil Lotzs Arethusa.

Round the Rocks Race course is a travel of the nineteen-square mile island of St. John. This is a path that provides a huge range of voyaging challenges against the lovely backdrop of an island which is two-thirds pure national park. Crews will require having on their toes with frequent tacks by offshore cays, cross currents as well as winding shifts across the east end and ski race -like atmospheric condition in the downwind.
