The Barcelona World Race is a two-handed non-stop round-the-world yacht race held every four years which will be departing from the city of Barcelona for the first time in 11th November 2007, coinciding with the last day of the Barcelona International Boat Show.
The race will be bringing the top international sailors together for the first time to compete against each other in teams of two. Over three months they will be sailing across some of the most hostile and challenging oceans on the planet, covering 25,000 miles in monohulls.
The Barcelona World Race will see sailors from the two worlds of solo sailing events, such as the famous Vendée Globe, and crewed events, like the Volvo Ocean Race (VOR), coming together to race in a unique format.
