The Ocean Race Europe 2025 will start from Kiel, Germany

Organisers of The Ocean Race have confirmed Kiel.Sailing.City as the host of the start of The Ocean Race Europe during a press conference in Kiel on Wednesday morning. The event is scheduled to start on 10 August, 2025.

Previously, Kiel was the finish port of the Volvo Ocean Race 2001-02 and last year the German city hosted a hugely successful Fly-By on the penultimate leg of The Ocean Race 2022-23.

Two teams were represented at the media event in Kiel on Wednesday – Team Malizia and Team Holcim-PRB – and both confirmed their intention to be on the starting line.

The race in 2025 will be the second edition of The Ocean Race Europe, following a debut event in the summer of 2021. This event will build on the foundations of the inaugural race and will be held under the banner of “Connecting Europe” with a race course that stretches from the Baltic Sea, through the North Sea and English Channel, into the Atlantic Ocean before a finish in the Mediterranean Sea. Racing will take place in the newest generation of high-tech IMOCA boats that foil above the water at record-breaking speeds.
