The Class Globe 5.80 One Design Ocean Racing yacht is creating waves with sailors around the world. Less than four months after it’s official launch, over 80 sailors are setting up to build in 23 countries.
Conceived by Australian adventurer and founder of the 2018 Golden Globe Race, Don McIntrye, as an affordable "People's Mini" for amateur construction, this solo ocean and offshore racing yacht is suddenly very popular. International fleets are expected to appear over the next few years. The yacht's ability to ship inside a 20ft container is creating real interest and new opportunities travelling to Europe for the 2021 Globe 5.80 Transat and Mini Globe Race.
