Don’t miss the opportunity to share an exciting new series, Ocean Challenge Live, with your readers!

This weekend, Rich Wilson, Skipper of the 60-foot yacht, Great American IV, will embark on a solo, non-stop race around the world. This race, named the Vendée Globe 2016, is widely recognized as the ultimate challenge in sailing. The 27-boat fleet will start in France, sail south past the equator into the South Atlantic, east around Africa’s Cape of Good Hope, across the Indian and Pacific Oceans, then around treacherous Cape Horn at the Southern tip of South American, and return to France.

This journey of approximately 28,000 miles will be accomplished in about 100 days. Ocean Challenge Live! will follow the Vendée Globe 2016 around-the-world-race from November 2016 through February 2017. Readers of all ages will enjoy following Wilson’s progress at sea.

The first feature in the series is available now to download at www.mo-nie.com using the code: vg2016. A new feature will be posted each week. Newspapers may use the features in print or online. A teacher guide is available to post on your website as well.
