The Ocean Race Europe

Cruising sailors in the English Channel and the Mediterranean Sea may catch a glimpse at boats competing in The Ocean Race Europe 2025. The race will be the second edition of The Ocean Race Europe, following a debut event in the summer of 2021. The event will build on the foundations of the inaugural race and will be held under the banner of “Connecting Europe,” with a race course that stretches from the Baltic Sea, through the North Sea and English Channel, into the Atlantic Ocean before a finish in the Mediterranean. 

Racing will take place in the newest generation of high-tech IMOCA boats that foil above the water at record-breaking speeds. The Ocean Race Europe will be more than a great sailing race. It is also a Race for the Ocean, promoting the restoration of ocean health as the key to sustaining life on our planet.

“This Race for the Ocean is also about creating real changes.”
