Enter and race… virtually! The New Caledonia Groupama Race is an international regatta, an adventure that is both intense and thrilling. Sailors from neighbouring countries have entered this physical and mental epic. Others – perhaps you – can sail the course dry shod!
You have a computer, a tablet or a smartphone? You have an Internet connection? If the answer is “yes”, that means that you are ready for this Adventure. You don’t need a harness, nor oilskins nor freeze-dried food, to enter – take part in the Virtuelle OPT-NC Groupama Race.<>The virtual regatta will start at 6PM (Nouméa time, 7AM GMT), Sunday the 25th September. This start time will allow Caledonians to attend the start of the real race at 8AM off Rocher à la Voile. Then you can surf, on Internet and on virtual seas, for 4 or 5days.
The game is straight forward : you choose your course, you keep an eye on the weather and… aim for a win!!The rules can be found here.
