The maritime competition, known for nearly two decades as the Volvo Ocean Race, will return in 2021-2022, renamed Ocean Race. The kickoff events are underway.
The race around the world will differ from the 2017-2018 event in which two classes of boats will participate.
One is the IMOCA 60 class, which will compete for the Ocean Race Championship, while the other design (all boats in this category equally) compete for the V065, Ocean Challenge Trophy. The IMOCA 60 will include the latest significant advances in sailing technology.
Mark Towell and Charlie Enright lead the first division team (formerly known as 55 South). The new name refers to how anyone can change their destiny and influence the world through one degree and constant change each time.
These scientific papers (Enright from Rhodes Island, and Towle from Hawaii) ran with the Alvimedica team at the Volvo Ocean Race in 2014-2015 and Vestas 11th Hour Racing in 2017-2018.
His team is now based in Port-la-Foret, a beautiful south-facing port in Brittany, France, where patches of forest have been obliterated. They will also move from the anxiety area – a few kilometers to the south and east.
The Harbor Island houses a medieval city with a majestic wall, reflecting the region’s historical saturation in maritime history – including the stop of the invading fleet.
Team priorities include accelerating specific maneuvering techniques. Explain correctly.
Our priorities now recognize the IMOCA 60 – and understand how these new boats work. IMOCA 60 is completely different from the Volvo 65 we use to sail.
The last two races were a single-format layout, and this is the first time Mark and I will compete in the development category.
So, there’s a lot to learn. At the same time, we have moved our game towards sustainability. This is our third race and the bar should be very high.
The ultimate goal is to win the next Ocean Race but there is a lot more that needs to happen every now and then.
We need to learn a new class of boats. We need to maintain the infrastructure of our team. There is a lot of work that we need to do to be ready.
Summer has begun, and the outbreak of osteoporosis in the coming winter months on the Bay of Biscay will strengthen the team’s capabilities. In the coming months, the team will undergo fierce naval experiments to overcome the complexities of aircraft mobility.
For starters, the team will compete in the Transat Jacques Vabre in late October – from Le Havre, France to Salvador, Brazil. They will then take part in additional winter training in France and off the coast of Portugal.
Tavel talked about the demands of the ocean race
There is never a big lesson. It always ends up being a series of lessons. It is a long and complicated race with many variables. Due to the length of time and distance, you should be flexible. This is the key.
You keep facing them. We must emphasize performance above all and manage our team. Obstacles indicate that something will go wrong during the ocean rush.
The term “sustainable” has penetrated the mathematical universe, and its creation includes profitable suppliers dedicated to minimizing the effects of the negative environment on manufacturing processes.
Boats include an arsenal of various materials, supplying suppliers and “permanent” sources is a science and science that includes life cycle analysis of clothing and parts that make up any boat.
The 2021-2022 Ocean Race will begin in the fall in Alicante, Spain, and will include nine stops. (Although Volvo has been stripped of the race title, the company still retains a degree of sponsorship.) Details of the race and emerging teams remain.
The city of Aarhus in Denmark will host a new station in the spring of 2022.
Challenges, challenges and complexities associated with training and preparation for team members remain an attraction. Towel explained.
It’s been over two years since you started Alicante, but we’re really good at it. There are many things we are working on and focusing on – the technical side and the sustainability side. This is a really exciting time for us.
The first division team will meet with the French media on 12 September in Nantes. A week later, on September 20 in Genoa, Italy, Towell remembers his first-hand experience of dealing with plastic pollution in the world’s oceans.
At this event, an innovation workshop will explain the relationship between value chains and the ocean problem.
The next Ocean Race will include two classes of boats, plus two foci: the traditional focus on teamwork, play and victory, and the highlight of cleaning up increasingly polluted seas.
