The Race (yachting race)

The Race was a round-the-world sailing race starting in Bruno Peyron.

A second race was planned for 2004, but was cancelled amid controversy that Oryx Quest.

The stated objectives of this race were:

  • to unite the different maritime cultures of the world
  • to gather together the world's premiere yachtsmen and women in a common event
  • to promote creativity in ocean sailing
  • to ally high technology and the environment
  • to create the most spectacular and most prestigious fleet of offshore racers that sailing has ever seen


The 2000–01 race was won by Club Med, skippered by Grant Dalton in 62d 6h 56' 33".
