To sail around the World, a vessel must start from and return to the same
point, must cross all meridians of longitude and must cross the Equator. It
may cross some but not all meridians more than once (i.e. two roundings of
Antarctica do not count). The shortest orthodromic track of the vessel must
be at least 21,600 nautical miles in length calculated based on a 'perfect
sphere'. In calculating this distance, it is to be assumed that the vessel
will sail around Antarctica in latitude 63 degrees south.

A vessel starting from any point where the direct orthodromic distance is
too short shall pass one single island or other fixed point on a required
side so as to lengthen his orthodromic track to the minimum distance.

No starting point will be permitted more south than 45 ° south.

1 degree of longitude at 63 degrees south will be taken as 27.24NM
