1000-mile Doublehanded Race http://www.1000mile.org/ . ©
In search of an even more challenging and international race than last year’s premiere, the committee of the Lombarini Marine 1000-mile Doublehanded Race has extended the race with two more legs.

Due to the extension the doublehanded sailors will enter Newcastle for a stopover after the first leg that will start in Holland on June 8th. From Newcastle the race will head to Bergen, Norway and from there be part of the Bergen-Shetland races (leg 3 and 4). The final and fifth leg will return to Newcastle from Bergen. Competitors must sail at least four legs to compete for the overall victory.

The route of the race will tracked between three countries and is anything but a Dutch clique. In last year’s edition fifteen crews from Norway, Great Britain, Holland, Belgium and Germany participated. This year the race committee will aim for at least 20 entries.

Who can participate? All experienced sailors seeking serious short-handed sailing competition. Your boat must be 27 ft LOA or more, and manned by two people. At least one crewmember must complete the entire race. The only exception to the minimum LOA is the Open650 class, which will be held if sufficient registrations are received. For all boats: To qualify a non-stop cruise of at least 100 NM in open sea must be made.

The committee of the Lombardini Marine 1000-mile Doublehanded Race is not just in this to tackle the elements – it is also their goal to enjoy the company of the fellow sailors. The 1000-Mile Doublehanded has been designed with fleet restarts at the beginning of each leg, so all competitors, be they fast or not-so-fast, stay together and enjoy the fun at every stopover.

Entering the race is possible until May 1st on the website www.1000mile.org. This website also provides more detailed information about the race and how to participate.
