    Traditional Navigation in RTW yacht race, 2018
    From: John Brown
    Date: 2016 Jan 26, 05:47 -0800

    In celebration of Sir Robin Knox-Johnston's historic 1968/9 world first solo non-stop circumnavigation in the Sunday Times Golden Globe Yacht Race, a new Golden Globe Race will be staged to mark the 50th anniversary of that Epic, starting in 2018.

    The competitors will be sailing without modern technology or satellite based navigation aids. (Not even electronic calculators, but slide rules should be be OK :-))

    At the moment there is a full list of provisional entries.

    Any Navlisters thinking of entering?  You will need an older type of boat between 32 and 36 feet long.
