THE OCEAN RACE
The Ocean Race is one of the most prestigious and challenging sailing events in the world. It takes place every three or four years and consists of a race around the world lasting several months.
The course of this sailing event changes with each edition and includes stopovers in different countries. The skippers have to sail through some of the most dangerous waters on the planet, such as the Southern Ocean or the North Atlantic, and face extreme weather conditions.
