Lindley supplies pontoons for The Ocean Race 2023


This is the fifth time that Alicante has been chosen as the starting point for the worldwide regatta The Ocean Race. The public entity Generalitat Valenciana, through its company Sociedad de Proyectos para la Transformación Digital, has contracted ALMARIN for the installation and subsequent removal of the floating and mooring infrastructure to host the regatta and support boats during the presence in Alicante until the regatta’s start. A total of 360 linear meters of LINDLEY floating pontoons and several anchorages and swing moorings to moor the boats in case of emergency have been installed for the support vessels of the participating boats.

From Alicante the regatta sailed to Mindelo on the island of São Vicente (Cape Verde). At this stop over LINDLEY MARINAS built and installed the floating infrastructure to receive the regatta and support boats. Local port authority ENAPOR has awarded a contract for the supply, installation and removal of 140 linear meters of pontoons with bow moorings for the event. Access by two gangways from the fixed jetty through bridgeheads designed and installed by LINDLEY, including water and electricity services ensure that the fleet will have proper conditions for their stopover in Cape Verde.

After the South Africa (Cape Town) stage, the fleet disembarks at Itajaí (Brazil), where LINDLEY MARINAS and its local partner built and installed the floating infrastructure for the boat berthing and mooring. The pontoons were built locally using reinforced concrete pontoons with polystyrene core. After the event they will be reused for the neighboring Marina de Itajaí, built by LINDLEY in two stages in 2015 and 2018.

"From ALMARIN and LINDLEY, we’re honored to contribute to this fantastic project where the best regatta teams compete, and also to able to join the event’s motto based on sustainability, recycling and reusage for protection of the oceans," says Luis Vasconcelos Dias, CEO of LINDLEY MARINAS.

LINDLEY MARINAS will be exhibiting in the ICOMIA 2023 - World Marinas Conference, which will take place from October 9th to 11th at the Tivoli Vilamoura conference center, in Vilamoura (Portugal). The Portuguese company specialized in floating pontoons for marinas and ports is the sponsor for the Visit Tour which comprises visits to Marina Vilamoura, Marina Albufeira and Marina Lagos, three of the largest marinas in the Portuguese southern coast.
