“I am excited about taking the event to Marstrand, which I believe is an ideal location for the only Pit Stop in this edition of the race,” said race CEO Knut Frostad. “This is great for the race. I have sailed in Marstrand myself a number of times and know how much our sailors will enjoy the island’s famous hospitality.”
The world’s premier offshore ocean race finishes in St Petersburg on 29 June after a 37,000 nautical mile odyssey that includes Asia on its route for the first time.
