It’s an exciting project, a little crazy and wildly ambitious, but it’s also a project being undertaken methodically, realistically, and with firm sources of support. It’s a real challenge, which is open to anyone and everyone interested in writing a new chapter in the history of ocean racing.
The team wants to contribute to a more popular and more attractive approach to our sailing region. We need to lift the barrier represented by Panama and encourage sailors to picture themselves in a new location of fun and discovery. The South Pacific is ideal from every angle. Tahiti is situated in the center of the Pacific, and from there we can radiate outwards or offer new challenges to European competitors who have been crossing the same transatlantic routes for fifty years. It’s also about offering sailors from Australia, New Zealand, the USA, Canada, and from all over South-East Asia, the chance to compete with each other and demonstrate their expertise.
