Legendary Skipper Paul Cayard to Train Translated Crew Off the Coast of San Francisco for Ocean Globe Race

Training sessions for non-professional sailors have started and will continue until 2023.

SAN FRANCISCO, November 11th, 2021

Translated, one of the world’s leading translation companies, has partnered with legendary skipper Paul Cayard to select and train its amateur sailors aboard the Translated 9, the Swan 65 owned by Translated for the Ocean Globe Race 2023.

Cayard, seven-time world champion, seven-time America’s Cup competitor, and the first American to win the Whitbread Round the World Race in 1998, has started training some ocean lovers who aspire to be part of the crew of Translated 9 for the OGR23. The sessions started in October and will continue until 2023.

60 tech and language executives have already experienced an introductory session in the past weeks. The sessions not only include tapping into Cayard’s sailing expertise, but his leadership skills. Those displaying an aptitude for sailing will potentially join the Translated 9 crew on a leg of the Ocean Globe Race, which starts in September 2023.

According to the OGR23 rules, each entrant’s crew must be composed of a maximum of 30% professional sailors, the remaining will be amateurs who will experience the adventure of a lifetime. Translated is making this adventure open to everyone who wants to apply at www.translated.com/9.

Marco Trombetti, co-founder and CEO of Translated, attended the sessions to undergo training himself for the around-the-world regatta.
