Frozen Race: The Final Installment starts Wednesday

Par Virtual Regatta - April 14 2014

Virtual Regatta players, get ready to take your winter gear back out from out of storage! The third and final installment of the Frozen Race is finally here. Departure will be Wednesday, April 16th at 6pm (CEST) from Dickson to Brest.

The 3500 mile course will traverse the Kara Sea, the Barents Sea, then pass by Spitzberg in the Norway Sea before heading toward the east coast of Greenland where skippers will pass the only buoy of the race (to be left to port side).

After the passage of the buoy, the course heads back to the warmer latitudes in Europe where skippers can start thinking about taking off their winter clothes again. You’ll head toward Iceland, then Northern Scotland, then back into the English Channel to the point of Brittany. The arrival circle will be located at Ouessant Island.

Hat Trick for Korun 56?

The winner of the last two installments, Korun 56, will be trying to take the overall win. His rivals have a chance of giving him a run for his money – Neptune7RKN, LysNoir TPN, Kaibigan RKN or TPN Reves de gosse are amongst the skippers who could take away Korun 56’s chance at the hat trick.

The weather conditions are forecasted to be variable and the passage of several weather systems will definitely keep things interesting.
