    Default 2018 Golden Globe Race

    I'm not quite sure what to make of this yet. (cue the scene from Airplane!)

    The 2018 Golden Globe Race is very simple. Depart Falmouth, England, sail solo, non-stop around the world via the five Great Capes and return to Falmouth. Entrants are restricted to using the same type of yachts and equipment that were available to Sir Robin in that first race. That means sailing without modern technology or benefit of satellite based navigation aids. Competitors must sail in production boats between 32ft and 36ft overall (9.75 10.97m) designed prior to 1988 with a full-length keel with rudder attached to their trailing edge, similar in concept to Knox-Johnston's Suhaili.
    That's an oddly-phrased yet very narrow range of boats.
    75,000GBP to the winner, limited to 20 entrants.

    hmmmmmm.
    No adversary is worse than bad advice.

    Suhaili isn't really racing this one, but they put her position on this tracker.
