Sail-World.com : NOR published for Portimão Global Ocean Race

NOR published for Portimão Global Ocean Race

The Notice of Race for the 2008/09 Portimão Global Ocean Race is now available with leg re-start dates confirmed.

Global Ocean Sailing Ventures (GOSV) today announced that the official Notice of Race for the 2008/09 Portimão Global Ocean Race has been published and is available for download on the race website – www.portimaoglobaloceanrace.com . The Notice of Race includes the confirmed start date as well as the re-start dates from each stopover port.

'Publishing our Notice of Race is a defining moment for us and for our competitors who can now move their campaigns forward with the utmost confidence,' said Race Director Josh Hall. 'The NOR is the official document that governs the event and sets in writing the rules and regulations under which the race is held. It also defines the start and finish dates for each leg so we are all set for the first leg to South Africa to get underway from Portimão on October 12, 2008.'

In discussions with Mayor Manuel de Luz and his team in Portimão it has been decided to move the start date into October from the originally planned date of September 20. 'We are committed to having an extensive education program running in conjunction with the race and we felt that it was important that the race start after the local schools returned from their summer holidays,' said Hall. 'The pontoons will be open to the public and we look forward to having droves of schoolchildren visiting the fleet.'

The start dates are as follows:
Portimão – 12th October 2008
Cape Town – 7th December, 2008
Wellington – 8th February, 2009
Ilhabela – 5th April, 2009
Charleston – 31st May, 2009
