Seably, the leading global community-driven marketplace for maritime training has become the official digital training partner of The Ocean Race, the world's toughest fully-crewed offshore sailing competition. The 14th edition of The Ocean Race will start on 15 January 2023 from Alicante, Spain.

With less than two months to go to the beginning of leg one, the partnership between Seably and The Ocean Race is a natural fit, as both organisations share many of the same core values. Through its Racing with Purpose programme, created with founding partner 11th Hour Racing, The Ocean Race has a proven platform to educate, inspire and accelerate action for our blue planet.

Seably marketplace matches these beliefs in education, inspiration and acceleration. Seably is creating a dedicated area in its marketplace to sustainability and is launching it with 14 courses, including one from The Ocean Race.

Both companies share similar values of innovation and performance. The Ocean Race promotes innovation through its cutting-edge workshops - The Ocean Race Summits - which tackle sustainability challenges affecting sailing, sport, events and ocean governance. The Ocean Race Summits and associated Innovation Workshops enable sharing of best practices and the development of advanced solutions, bringing together experts focused on a specific topic.

For its part, Seably is the leading innovator in maritime training and a game-changer in maritime education. With a spotlight on performance, The Ocean Race and Seably share similar missions of motivating people to accomplish the extraordinary. For Seably, this is in career and personal development and wellbeing.

Seably, the SaaS training platform launched by The Swedish Shipowners' Association in September 2020 engages learners through easy-to-understand content delivered online or offline via an app, PC and mobile device. Complex and highly technical material is presented in various learning styles, including 3D and video, eliminating cultural barriers to learning. In addition, the high-tech platform uses iris recognition for learners to avoid fraudulent behaviour.

Andrea Lodolo, the CEO of Seably, commented, "I am proud that we have been able to join The Ocean Race. We at Seably are a young company growing its sustainability strategy and look to the Ocean Race as an inspiration to move forward with our development plans. Launching our new fourteen sustainability courses highlights our commitment to this and marks an essential milestone in our long-term journey partnering together with The Ocean Race."

The international competition is considered the toughest test of a sports team, where sailors work together 24 hours a day, seven days a week, in the harshest conditions on the ocean, to achieve their dream. In 2023, the epic race will celebrate its 50th anniversary.

The 14th edition of The Ocean Race will start from Alicante, Spain on 15 January 2023, and will finish in Genova, Italy early in the summer of 2023.

The race will visit nine iconic cities around the globe over a six-month period (Alicante, Spain - Cabo Verde - Cape Town, South Africa - ItajaĆ­, Brazil - Newport, RI, USA - Aarhus, Denmark - Kiel Fly-By, Germany - The Hague, The Netherlands - Genova, Italy) and features a leg with the longest racing distance in the 50-year history of the event - a 12,750 nautical mile, one-month marathon from Cape Town, South Africa to ItajaĆ­, Brazil.

The two fleets of mixed crews on foiling IMOCA and one-design VO65 boats will pass all three great southern Capes - Cape of Good Hope, Cape Leeuwin, Cape Horn - non-stop, for the first time.

Since 1973, The Ocean Race has provided the ultimate test of a team and a human adventure like no other. For nearly 50 years, it has kept an almost mythical hold over some of the greatest sailors and has been the proving ground for the legends of this sport.
