In addition to its new port of arrival, this edition will feature tailor-made courses: the Multi50s will first have to round the Brazilian archipelago of Fernando de Noronha, a nod to the race's most frequent destination (eight editions have been held in Brazil). The total represents 5,800 nautical miles. As for the Ultims, they will have to go around another Brazilian archipelago, off Rio de Janeiro - Trindade and Martim Vaz - making a total distance of 7,500 nm. Departure is scheduled for November 7. Also worthy of note for this 2021 edition: a desire to innovate on environmental issues, support for more women to be involved in ocean racing and the creation of a fifth official class, the Virtual Regatta!
