Golden Globe Ocean Race 2018

Updated Wednesday 30th May 2018

OU alumni Antoine Cousot will be circumnavigating the globe for 30,000 miles, alone. Here, our academics explore information, science and ideas about the ocean.

Welcome! You are invited to follow our OU alumni sailor Antoine Cousot during his solo journey around our aquaplanet. He will be sailing using 1960’s navigation equipment and technology, not with modern day smart phones and GPS.

As we follow Antoine in his journey, we are hoping to give you some insights into his motivation for the race, follow his journey and explore conditions he may encounter, science of our oceans, features on the seafloor and much more.
