In addition to tracking the Volvo Ocean Race around the world, I’ve also been keeping an eye on Carina, a 48 foot aluminum hull sloop, as she and her crew make their way the opposite direction

Carina’s 2011 campaign was designed to integrate a circuit of the world’s premier ocean races with a circumnavigation of the globe, beginning with the 2,975 mile Transatlantic Race 2011 from Newport, RI to the Lizard in England.  In the following months we will be continuing on to Sydney, Australia to compete in the Sydney-Hobart Race, and finally back around to Newport, RI in time for the June 15th start of the Newport-Bermuda Race.

By the time we are back in the U.S. in May, we will have raced more than 5,000 miles, and delivered the boat more than 40,000 miles, including three Atlantic crossings, one Pacific crossing, and one Indian Ocean crossing.
