OUR STORY

The Race Around was a vision started by a team of sailors with a passion for offshore racing.

 

A vision to deliver a round the world offshore race rife with close fought, fierce competition, alongside a vision to positively drive real Sustainability further than it has ever gone before within professional racing and to use our sport as a living case study for industry wide change.


On the surface, sailing is arguably one of the most sustainable sports, being powered nature. However, scratching beneath that very surface, the wider marine and boat building industry still has a long way to go to be truly sustainable, as we push towards a net zero model for circularity.

 

It is our vision to deliver a fully sustainable racing event that will help drive this push towards circularity and true sustainability throughout the marine sector and beyond into additional manufacturing sectors.

Class40 is the perfect class for this. It’s fast, competitive, accessible, and it’s ‘box rule’ structure allows for new, innovative developments that improve both speed and sustainability simultaneously.

 

The Race Around is more than a race. It’s a vessel for change.
