In this episode of Point of SAIL, sponsored by West System Epoxy, Principal Editor Adam Cort talks with sailor and adventure Don McIntyre, organizer of the Golden Globe Race 2018. In their conversation, Don discusses everything from the time he organized a recreation of Capt. William Bligh’s open-boat voyage across much of the South Pacific to the various Corinthian round-the-world races he’s currently organizing. These include a follow up to the Golden Globe Race 2018, set to start in 2022; a kind of fully-crewed retro-Whitbread event called the Ocean Globe Race 2023; and a solo round-the-world event to be held aboard a brand-new class of 22ft home-built plywood ocean racers, the Globe 5.80 Transat.
