2005 Oryx Quest    


Sat, 5 Feb 2005 at 09:00 to Tue, 5 Apr 2005

4 boats will be competing.
The first of two 'Sea Quests' devised by Quest International Sports Events.

Oryx Quest 2005 pits the world's largest and fastest sailing machines against each other in a non-stop round the world race that is only expected to take around 50 days.

It is the first non-stop round the world race to start and finish in the Middle East. The race starts on the 5th February 14.00.

There are only eight of these racing leviathans in existence and at least six of these boats will be in Doha - the capital of the Gulf Sate of Qatar - for the start.

The route takes the boats down the Indian Ocean and into the Southern Ocean where they will round the Antarctic Continent before rounding the infamous Cape Horn and head eastwards. After rounding The Cape of Good Hope the fleet will turn North and race for the finish line in Doha.
