3000nm across the Atlantic Ocean without GPS ....

... 1 amazing challenge!

The Golden Globe Race has captivated the sailing world. 8 amazing people are attempting to sail around the world, solo, non stop, with absolutely no electronic navigation or assistance. There have been incredible tales of storms, challenges, bravery and determination. Now the Golden Globe Race and Rubicon 3 have teamed up to offer you the chance to try something similar.

 

Could you sail across the Atlantic Ocean using just the Sun, Moon, stars and planets to navigate?

Right now, maybe not, but ten lucky people will be taught celestial navigation by Rubicon 3 and will then set off across the Atlantic from Key West in the USA right the way back to the south coast of England. En route you will have to find the Bahamas, Bermuda and the Azores.

Join for the full crossing or a half crossing

Just as we don't have time to sail around the world, we know that you may not have a full six weeks spare to sail the entire Atlantic. Therefore although you should try and sail the entire Atlantic if you can, you can join or leave the challenge in the Azores.

 

The question is: what will you be doing in March 2019?
