VOR: 'Point' Nemo isn’t actually a bit of land

Sunday, March 25, 2018

SAN FRANCISCO – The Volvo Ocean Race boats are racing past an iconic point – Point Nemo, the world's most lonely place – on Leg 7, and here's everything you need to know about the place which is regarded the hardest-to-reach location on planet Earth. You can't actually see it. That's because ‘Point’ Nemo isn’t actually a bit of land. It’s an invisible spot in the vast Southern Ocean furthest from land, in any direction. Other poles of inaccessibility include the Eurasian Pole, in China, or the Southern Pole of Inaccessibility in Antarctica – a very difficult place to visit.  Jonno Turner, in an interesting article that popped up today on the 2017-18 VOR website. Read the full story here, which is recycled from a 2015 article on the Red Bull website here
