× The start/finish and stopover host ports are in the final stages of negotiation and will be announced soon. The ports on this OGR route map are only examples and not definitive. The start will be from an EU port and may include a prologue from another country before the start.
Starting in Europe in September 2023, the OGR is a 27,000-mile sprint around the globe, spread across four legs, taking in the Southern Ocean and the three Great Capes.
Stopovers will include South Africa, Australia or New Zealand and South America, before finishing back in Europe in April 2024.
