Barcelona World Race

The round-the-world yachting trip starts here with the 4th Barcelona World Race. A sporting challenge and ocean-going adventure that tests the limits of human endurance.

Organised by the Fundació Navegació Oceànica Barcelona (FNOB), the regatta is the only double-handed (two crew per boat), round-the-world regatta and is part of the IMOCA Ocean Masters World Championships. The first race was held from November 2007 to February 2008.

The Barcelona World Race covers some 23,000 nautical miles, circumnavigating the globe from Barcelona to Sydney and back to Barcelona. During the three-month race, the skippers will make their way through 12 climate zones and cross three oceans.

The 4th World Race will set sail from Barcelona on 12th January 2019 and return in mid-April. You can follow the race from the Sea Experience control centre, in the old harbour, the Port Vell, next to the Maremàgnum leisure complex.
