From January 2nd Translated 9 will participate in the epic Cape2Rio Race 2023 with an international crew, brand new to ocean sailing, and results from a selection process involving more than 1,000 non-professional volunteer applicants worldwide. Her crew mirrors the accessibility and inclusiveness of the project which welcomes whoever believes in humans and shares the idea that through human skill, we can achieve anything.

It is also made up of people from the localisation industry, some of whom experimented with ocean sailing for the first time on Translated 9 US under the guidance of the legendary Paul Cayard.
