The Boat

Golden Globe Race 2022

The GOLDEN GLOBE RACE is very simple. A boat and a skipper (solo) must depart from Les Sables-d’Olonne, sail around the world via the five Great Capes and return to Les Sables-d’Olonne. The boat must be within certain parameters so any equipment is similar to Sir Robin in the first Golden Globe Race at 1968.

ALEIX SELLES

Aleix discovered sailing and the love for the oceans at his very early age. The first day he got on a dinghy, a grain of salt got in him and affected his decisions from that moment.
At the age of 14 years old he discovered regattas and embrace them as a way of pushing himself and learning more about the wind and the sea. He raced in dinghies and keel yachts mostly inshore.
Aleix enjoyed offshore sailing for the first time at the age of 16 and slowly got into it. He logged most of his offshore miles in the last few years.
