    The next challenge to the Azores is scheduled for 2016. However the Jester Challenge proper is next in 2014 and each time it has been run there have always been boats stopping in the Azores - but not necessarily intentionally.

    The more interesting challenge coming up, I think, is the Golden Globe Challenge in 2014. A single handed, non stop circumnavigation south of the three capes. Sort of a recreation of the 1968 Golden Globe without the prize money. It won't start until after the boats return from America from JC14.

    John,

    Are you planning a start on a particular date or a "window of opportunity" as per the Golden Globe?

    Default Golden Globe Challenge

    Don't you hate YBW forums, by the time you write a reply to some question you are logged off and lose the lot.

    The easy answer to the question about more information is http://sites.google.com/site/goldenglobechallenge/

    and there is a Yahoo forum called Golden Globe Challenge but I am the only moderator and am disappearing to do the JAC12 so will not be able to approve anyone until I get back.
