ClassClass 40 – The Race Around 0 – The Race Around
With two years to go until the start of Class40’s official round-the-world race, The Race Around‘s organisers 5 Ocean Sports Marketing and their US counterpart Manuka Sports Event Management are delighted to officially open registration, publish the event’s preliminary Notice of Race and welcome three new commercial partners to the race’s growing partnership portfolio.
Sam Holliday, Founder and Managing Director of The Race Around, said: “It’s a great feeling to bring this race to life after months of hard work behind the scenes. Over the past 12 months we’ve spent time really digging into the detail of what makes a round-the-world race a success and we think we have all the ingredients to build something of significant note.”
15 places in solo, 15 places in double and five wildcards
Due to The Race Around being limited to 35 entries, the Organising Authority has reserved 15 places for each respective category (solo and double-handed) while retaining five wildcard entries to be used at the organiser’s discretion.
