“The answer is in nature” is the theme of this year’s World Water Day. Sailors are well aware of this and the FNOB continues to play a big role in exploring the seas so more can be learned about the world’s water.
The FNOB is made up of men and women working for a cause which benefits society as a whole. That also means that we support initiatives aimed at real social equality, on International Women’s Day and every day. The activity at the core of the FNOB’s work is ocean sailing, one of the few top-flight sports where women and men compete alongside each other, with no gender divides on the scoreboard.
The rounding of Cape Horn is one of the most delicate and meteorologically complex stages of the Barcelona World Race. In the next race, as the southern autumn sets in, the IMOCAs will take on the legendary cape in what may be the more treacherous conditions than in previous editions.
