Organisers of the Global Solo Challenge 2023 are proud to announce that the host port for the start and finish of the event has been secured at Marina Coruña, A Coruña, Spain.
Located in the stunning independent municipality of Galicia, A Coruña and its principle Marina will provide the perfect venue for the GSC 2023. From a nautical point of view, the geographical location of A Coruna is ideal for both the start and the finish of a traditional East-About round the world sailing event.
Entrants will start the event from the protected bay waters of Ria da Coruña. After rounding the peninsula of Montealto, where the iconic Tower of Hercules is located, they will quickly be into the prevailing trade winds, passing Cape Finisterre prior to their descent of the Atlantic. The first boats are due to start on September 2nd 2023.
