Published on May 6th, 2019
Many people wonder what draws the world’s best sailors back to compete in a brutal round-the-world endurance battle like The Ocean Race – and here, America’s Cup, Sail GP, and moth racing veteran Kyle Langford tells his own experiences of his first ever offshore race when he did the 2017-18 Volvo Ocean Race – whilst admitting that he’s already itching to go in the next one.

First known as the Whitbread Round the World, and then the Volvo Ocean Race, the newly branded 2021-22 The Ocean Race will feature the high-tech, foiling IMOCA 60 class along with a third lap for the one-design VO65, but this edition will see this fleet with new rules on age and crew diversity. The race course of the 2021-22 edition will be determined over the first six months of 2019 but will start in the autumn of 2021 from Alicante, Spain.
