Info: Until recently called the Whitbread Round the World Race, this is widely considered the world’s most challenging sailing race. It’s held every three or four years and consists of 9 or 10 legs, with crews racing perhaps 20 days on a single leg. The 2017-18 race covered about 45,000 nautical miles. The Whitbread’s first all-female crew broke records in the 1989-90 race, an achievement recounted in a recent documentary film, ‘Maiden.’
