Ulysse Nardin & the ocean race
Official timing partner
Ulysse Nardin is proud to be the Official Timing Partner of the 14th edition of The Ocean Race adventure. The common ground between us and these daring sailors is as vast as the ocean itself. Since 1973, this ultimate ocean marathon has been considered as a team and human adventure like no other, where legendary sailors compete in the most challenging waters. For almost two centuries, Ulysse Nardin has been pushing the limits of technology, design and innovation. Helping those who push the limits of sailing is just the next logical step for us.
This open-sea sailing race will start on the 15th of January 2023 in Alicante, Spain and will finish in Genoa, Italy, in the summer after stopping by 8 host cities along the way. During the entire six-month event, Ulysse Nardin will be responsible for all official race timings, including start countdowns, leg timings and finishes.
Our mastery of time will also be put at the service of the 24-hour Speed Challenge where every boat in both the one design VO 65 class and the flying, foiling IMOCA class, will be constantly monitored via Race Control. We will set up rolling 24-hour distance tracking throughout the leg.
In each class, the boat that sails the longest distance per leg will win.
