Vendée Globe 2020

Single-handed round-the-world yacht race

Handy information
Vendée Globe 2020

The Vendée Globe yacht race – which consists of a single-handed, non-stop, round-the-world voyage – is one of the toughest and most demanding races of its kind. Based on this yacht race, the Museu Marítim de Barcelona (MMB) and the Fundació Navegació Oceànica Barcelona (FNOB) have devised an educational project that enables students to monitor the race, in real time, through a series of classroom activities that link up with other activities that can be carried out at different institutions and cultural facilities.

The educational project begins with this small exhibition which explains what the yacht race involves – including sailing and navigation, the day-to-day lives of each crew member, and the vessels that can be considered state-of-the-art technological instruments. Among other activities, the exhibition will allow you to monitor the yacht race, day by day.
