Canada Ocean Racing is ready to start the highly anticipated Guyader Bermudes 1000 Race, set to take place from May 7, 2023, at 2:00 p.m. The course is 1200-mile loop in the Atlantic via the Fastnet at the southwestern tip of Ireland and a Gallimard Waypoint located northwest of Cape Finisterre.
The Canadian co-skippers are excited to test their skills against some of the strongest skippers in the world. Scott Shawyer and Ryan Barkey will be leading the Canadian outfit as they take part in the team’s first IMOCA Globe Series race.
“For us as to get to our first globe series race is a huge milestone and demonstrates how far we have come in the past year. It has been an amazing adventure so far and I have learned so much. I am looking forward to continuing that learning in this race as well as the future races on my journey to the Vendée Globe 2028.” – Scott Shawyer
The Guyader Bermudes 1000 Race is known for its harsh conditions, with sailors facing everything from strong winds and high waves to tricky navigational challenges. However, the team is ready to take on whatever obstacles stand their way, thanks to the preseason training programme and preparation.
“We have put in countless hours of hard work to get to this point, and we are confident that we have what it takes to be successful,” said Barkey. “For us a successful race will be to cross the finish line in Brest”
