Podcast Episode 6 – The Ocean Race Update

On the latest episode of the Yacht Racing Podcast host Justin Chisholm gets an update on what’s been going on behind the scenes at The Ocean Race – the fully crewed around the world race formerly called the Volvo Ocean Race – from Ocean Race executive director Richard Mason; IMOCA 60 class president Antoine Mermod; and race director at the Ocean Race Phil Lawrence, all speaking from the race’s headquarters in Alicante.

Amongst the many topics they discuss are:

– why rumours circulating recently of a 12-month delay to the next edition of the race are unfounded

– what the course for the next race might be and when it will be announced

– how many teams the race organisers are hoping for in both the VO65 and IMOCA 60 fleets

– what sort of budgets are being searched for by the IMOCA 60 teams

– the possibility of an Around Europe Race in 2023 to mark the-around-the-world race’s 50th anniversary

All that and very much more…
