Ocean Race | Holcim-PRB won the second leg by fifteen minutes at Biotherm

From Cape Town to Itajai

The third leg takes a field of five Imoga yachts from Cape Town to the other side of the world. The finish line is drawn in Itajai, Brazil, some 12,750 nautical miles from the start. It is estimated that these boats will take a month to complete.

Apart from the length, the route has one challenge after another. First passing the Cape of Good Hope, then Cape Lew, the southwestern point of the Australian mainland, and finally the oh-so-infamous Cape Horn. It can get really scary here…

Once this Southern Ocean coaster is complete – read more details in our preview on Leg 3 – it will take a northerly course for the final journey along the Argentine and Brazilian coast to Itajai. This level is very difficult and can earn double points. First before crossing near the western tip of New Zealand, then at the end of Itajai.

Glaciers

The Holcim-PRB team won the first two stages, but that offers zero guarantees. Who knows, if Holcom-PRB doesn’t improve on the way to Brazil, it might even have to give up its lead position. For example, a lot is expected of a fourth-place finish in Team Malisia, but all things must remain intact between the inevitable glaciers. From boats to foils…

The third phase of the Ocean Race will be a real challenge for man and machine!
