Sailing for change
ArcticStern is a project of young adventurers driven by their passion for sailing, their thrill of competition and their love towards nature. They want to make a difference, communicate and share their sensitivity to current and future environmental issues and their love for challenges. It is through the Ocean Globe Race 2023 that ArcticStern wants to be the wind of change.
ArcticStern wants to bring together the community sensitive to the environmental issues, encouraging simple living and promoting environmental awareness through the
Ocean Globe Race.
The Ocean Globe Race 2023
The legendary world-circling regatta Whitbread is back, under the name of Ocean Globe Race (OGR).
To mark the 50th anniversary of the first Whitbread, the OGR is expected to start in Europe on September 10th 2023. It will have four legs, with stopovers in South Africa, Australia or New Zealand and South America, following the route of the original 1973 Whitbread through the three great capes, Cape of Good Hope, Cape Leeuwin and Cape Horn.
