It has been nearly 30 years since ordinary sailors have been able to race around the world. Now, many of the 24 entrants in the 2023 Ocean Globe Race are looking for amateur crews. Opportunities to race onboard Eric Tabarly’s famous 1973 Whitbread entry Pen-Duick VI; or a classic Nautor Swan 65, through the Southern Ocean and around Cape Horn, are open.
Marie Tabarly has been actively sailing Pen-Duick VI for many years, as the flagship of her Elemen’Terre Project. It has become a floating think tank, a place of exchange and meeting as well as to reflect on social issues and environmental protection. Joining the Ocean Globe Race continues with this theme, and last week she opened her search for a volunteer crew.
“The decision to take part in a crewed round-the-world race, is not one to be taken lightly, but it is a beautiful tribute to Pen Duick VI and her Jubilee.” Said Marie Tabarly, “With this in mind, I am inviting sailors to apply to be crew on board, as this is a lifetime opportunity I wanted to share, and a way to meet new people on this adventure.”
