We believe in humans.

That’s why we are taking part in the most human-centered regatta ever: the Ocean Globe Race 2023.

The route

  1. Europe to South Africa
  2. South Africa to Australia / New Zealand
  3. Australia / New Zealand to South America
  4. South America to Europe

This will be no ordinary race: the Ocean Globe Race 2023 (September 2023 – April 2024) will mirror the 1977 edition in both its route and the technology allowed on board: with no modern navigation equipment or weather forecasting software, the race will rely instead on star-mapping, barometer readings, and the sweat, perseverance, and courage of its participants.

Translated 9 in San Francisco

We are inviting our friends to experience what sailing around the world is. No prior sailing experience is needed. We want to prove that with courage, determination, and resilience, you can achieve anything.

The training sessions will be led by Paul Cayard, a 7-time world champion and 7-time America’s Cup competitor, who has twice circumnavigated the globe, and became the first American to win the Whitbread Round the World Race in 1998.

Inspired by dreamers

Translated 9 has a glorious history that tells of diversity, courage, breaking rules and plotting new courses.

Once known as the ADC Accutrac, captained by Claire Francis – a true outsider and the first woman to lead a boat in the Ocean Globe Race – this sailboat had an unforgettable voyage, achieving a fantastic fifth place in the 1977 edition of the Whitbread and reaching the finish line in 126 days and 20 hours, all in a race in which getting to the finish is the first and greatest triumph.

We want to repeat history: the same boat, the same route, the same old technology and hopefully the same success.
