HSBC GLOBAL EDUCATION CHALLENGE
From September 2002, millions of children (and their teachers) in Primary and Secondary schools will be able to freely access an exciting new independent learning web-site based on possibly the world's greatest individual sporting challenge.
Under a personal login, children will be able to follow the real 'Around Alone' Yacht Race, keeping in touch with real events and tackling relevant weekly challenges live on-line.
The Around Alone yacht race begins in New York and circumnavigates the globe, stopping briefly in Torbay, England. The race takes the skippers through the North and South Atlantic, the Indian Ocean and South Pacific. Other port stopovers en route are Cape Town, South Africa, Tauranga, New Zealand and Salvador, Brazil. The race finishes in Newport, Rhode Island in the USA.
The online course will follow the route of this race focusing particularly on one skipper, Graham Dalton. Graham will provide weekly e-mail updates on the web site, telling pupils all about his weekly adventures at sea or on land. Children will be able to get a taste for the vastness of the Pacific, the calmness of the doldrums, the fabulous untamed sealife, the storms of the Capes and the cultures of five continents!
This is how the site will work:
Photographs and short video clips will be available on the sailing section of the site, so that children can experience some of the excitement and exhilaration of sailing single-handedly through some of the world's roughest oceans.
