Next Stop Ibiza

The NOMAN Barcelona-Ibiza race 2015 got underway as of 9.30 GMT on Monday 13th July. Initial conditions are light and variable with wind speeds of 5-10 knots from the NW, however it is the heat that will play a big deciding role in the race. To combat toasty conditions of 30+ degrees celsius on deck (86+ Fahrenheit), each NOMAN will need to drink 6-8 litres (2 US gallons) of water a day.

Departing from the Port Olimpic in Barcelona, Teams Isabel and Danielle will initially track on a south westerly course before turning southwards away from the coastline — across the open Mediterranean to Ibiza, 200 miles away.

You can track NOMAN’s progress on GPS via the link here.
