Veterans of the Whitbread race are attending a party to celebrate the 50th-anniversary of the iconic race. The party is being staged as part of the start of the 2023 Ocean Globe Race (OGR)

The OGR, a nostalgic race, commemorates 50 years since the inaugural Whitbread Round the World Race in 1973.

The party is taking place in the OGR Race Village at MDL’s Ocean Village marina in Southampton.

Don McIntyre, the OGR founder who also spearheaded the recent two Golden Globe Races and the upcoming 2025 Mini Globe Race, remarked, "This reunion is a a key highlight of the OGR festivities. Many ex-Whitbread teams are here. The event evokes powerful memories from their past endeavors."

Boatshed are supplying over 1000 beers to help with the story telling ;)

Cheers to everyone from x
