Dateline: Marina Rubicon, Lanzarote, Spain, Wed 15th of Nov 2021
Due to a weak weather forecast for the scheduled start on November 18th, the Race Director and the five remaining entrants of the inaugural Globe 5.80 Transat agreed to move the start date forward to Wednesday 17 November at 10:00 am UTC.
“The guys look very organized and are very eager to finally set off across the Atlantic. “said Race Director Lutz Kohne, “ With days of forecast calm weather approaching, all agreed we must leave RUBICON MARINA as soon as possible to get south and hopefully reach the Trades much sooner.”

“It’s a testament of the sailors’ will to get going, the boat’s design, and the technical choices made” said competitor and Race Founder Don McIntyre, “The boats and crews resisted well to the testing conditions of the first leg, needed no repairs and little preparation so let's go!”

With a daily average between 120 to 140 nautical miles with the right conditions, the sailors expect a crossing time between 3 to 4 weeks, arriving in the Caribbean with time to spare before Christmas on the sandy beaches of Antigua.
