#GGR2022 South African entrant Jeremy Bagshaw had just bought Are Wiig’s yacht from the #GGR2018 which was sold in Cape Town after his shock dis-masting and rollover. The buyer then repaired all the damage and has now once again been sold to Jeremy. The OE32 is a fast boat no question so it will be interesting to watch the preparation for the next edition!

November 11th 2019 09:14 PMMEET SEB!
Jane and I are excited to introduce our new Joint Media Director for GGR2022 & OGR2023 🙂 Frenchman Sébastien Delasnerie is a journalist, columnist, communications & public affairs professional with 20 years of experience in various countries of Europe, Africa & the Middle East. When not at work, Seb has consistently been doing his best to spend more time at sea than on land, cruising and campaigning yachts offshore between France, the UK, Ireland & Spain. After the Golden Globe Race 2018, he quickly switched to retro sailing, changing his Archambault 35 for short-handed offshore racing ( See https://goldengloberace.com/talking-boats/ ) to his 1978 Aphrodite 101. Joining the GGR-OGR team is a natural way for Seb to reconcile his passion for sailing with his communications expertise, bringing both events to larger audiences.

The book of Jean Luc Van Den Heede’s life is out and SATURDAY he signs at Les Sables d’Olonne for the lucky ones!! 🙂 #GGR2022
November 3rd 2019 08:29 PMAustralian #GGR2022 entrant Michael Davey has a simple but very serious plan!
Since this photo was taken, he got rid of everything above deck, put it on a ship in the USA, sent it to New Zealand and has now started a complete substantial competative racing refit. He like a few others remember well, that both Abhilash Tomy and Gregor McGuckin were closing in fast on Mark Slats in the Southern Ocean before the big storm and that Rustler 36’s may not and are probably not needed to win the GGR! Watch this space. After extensive sea trials, Michael will ship the boat to the start in Les Sables d’Olonne….the three groups are forming, those going around, those wanting to go fast going around and those who seriously want to win!
