The historical Ligurian port has been confirmed as the site of  Genova The Grand Finale – the final leg of The Ocean Race, the tour of the world in sailing by teams, 2022-23. Now the Superba has also been announced as the finale for The Ocean Race Europe.


With The Ocean Race Europe – declared the chairman of the race, Richard Brisius – we will fulfil the desires of many: a race between European cities with fans and athletes working together to achieve results and at the same time taking the lead in making changes for a healthier planet. We know about the importance of team work and completely support the project of the European Union for a green transition, for digitalisation and unity.

Even our friends and partners in Genova – added Brisius – deeply understand the value of environmental strategies in support of the economy and the wellbeing of the people. We are happy to be able to work with them in order to make The Ocean Race Europe a success.


Satisfaction from Palazzo Tursi. “We are proud – said the mayor of Genova,  Marco Buccito be able to host the first edition of The Ocean Race Europe, which will be a great event for ocean sailing in 2021. Genova will have a central role on the international stage and will be able to celebrate its traditions and ambitions, in addition to applying as a candidate for other future international events. Our city is focusing on being more present globally.


The Ocean Race Europe is reserved for VO65 and IMOCA class vessels. The race will begin at the end of May from a port in Brittany, on the Atlantic coast of France, and will be made up of a number of legs, concluding then in Genova in the third week of June. The other cities participating as stops for the race will be announced one after the other. The VO65 monotype fleet will participate in a prologue to The Ocean Race Europe, departing from the Baltic Sea at the beginning of May.
