The 2022 Race introduces for the first time a JOSHUA CLASS II made up of identical steel one design replicas of Bernard Moitessier’s original JOSHUA. Previous designs used in the 2018 Edition and again in 2022 are now grouped in the SUHAILI CLASS. The total number of Entrants is limited to 35 made up of 28 (23+5 special invitations) in SUHAILI CLASS and up to seven in the JOSHUA CLASS. A Wait list is established once all spots are full. When a current Provisional Entry fails to meet a particular deadline, or decides to withdraw from the Race, the next available Waitlist entrant is offered a provisional Entry. Up until August 2020 Entrants have the option of confidentiality, withholding details for various reasons. There are three confidential Entries from Australia, New Zealand and Britain NOT listed here.
