Jean-Luc Van den Heede Golden Globe Race 2018

Golden Globe Race: How Don McIntyre converted his try

After a first edition won by Jean-Luc Van den Heede with five out of the seventeen competitors making it to the finish, the Golden Globe Race will return to Les Sables d’Olonne. The town and surrounding area renewed their partnership with the organiser Don McIntyre at the Nautic Boat Show in Paris. McIntyre, who has since then announced he is to organise another vintage race, the Ocean Globe Race, intends to step things up by 4th September 2022, when the second Golden Globe Race starts.
