The organizers of the Golden Globe Race in 2018 have changed the venue of the race: race around the world will take place in the UK, as it was originally, and in France, in the port of Les Sables d'olonne. The reason for the postponement is the shortage of financial support. On 1 July the participants will start at the not equipped with advanced technology and electronics boats built until 1988. From Russia the yachtsman Igor Zaretsky will take a part at the anniversary race. Sportsman wishes to reiterate the performance of Robin Knox-Johnston.
