The Ocean Race

The only museum in the world dedicated to Sailing Around the World, an interactive space that traces the more than 45 years of sailing competition history.

The Ocean Race Museum

The Ocean Race Museum is an interactive space established in 2012 with the aim of transmitting the history of the regatta and its advances in nautical technology, raising awareness about the protection of the oceans, and showing the human effort that this sporting challenge entails.

The visit includes the Regatta Control Room from where the boats are followed during the competition; an innovative technology and communication center via satellite.

Since 2008, Alicante has been the Port of Departure for all editions of the regatta, and it will be for the next two.

#VisitUnBoat

Visit the interior of the competition boat Brasil 1, a VO70 model that participated in the 2005-2006 edition of the Round The World Sailing. Experience the living conditions of the crew, as well as the anecdotes and nooks and crannies that the boat hides.

#Clean seas

You can visit from the outside the Pirates of the Caribbean ship, withdrawn from the first stage of the competition in the 2005-06 edition, with a broken bulkhead and a leak in the hull. Since December 2015, it has been located in Puerta del Mar square, a privileged place in the maritime area of ​​the city of Alicante. The boat is vinyled with one of the regatta’s sustainability emblems, linked to the UN program #MaresLimpios: Cambia la Trea del Plástico, which gave its name to one of the boats in the 2017-18 edition, Turn the Tide on Plastic.

History of Spain in The Ocean Race

This temporary exhibition commemorates the 41-year history of Spain’s participation in the toughest regatta in existence. Discover the feats of Spanish boats, and emblematic sailors such as “Chuny” Bermúdez, Juan Vila, Guillermo Altadill or Xavi Fernández. As well as many of the treasures that accompanied them on their journey around the world.
