Europe to Canaries then across to Caribbean

October 31st 2021 marked the start of an extraordinary first ever 2021 GLOBE 5.80 Transat (G580T), a single-handed solo race across the Atlantic in 19ft-5.8m home built plywood yachts.

The idea of creating this new Mini Class of yacht, was launched in March 2020 just before the COVID dramas were kicking in. The G580T was announced at the same time and builders have been creating their adventure ocean racing Globe 5.80 yachts in garages, tents and backyards ever since.

The G580T website covers all aspects of each edition scheduled to run every two years - the 2nd in 2023.
