Golden Globe Race Countdown
A Solo, non-stop, unassisted round the world 30,000 mile race. Nine months at sea alone in a small boat, the Golden Globe Race is the longest and loneliest sporting event in the World. It will entail stepping back to the Golden Age of solo sailing, with no modern technology.
I will sail the race in the sprit of Edward Conor Marshall O’Brien, the first skipper to take a small boat around the world via the three great southern capes. O’Briens voyage began and ended at the Port of Foynes, County Limerick, Ireland. I will bring with me the candle holder that Conor had with him on his journey.
This race is a fantastic challenge, over the next two years in preparation for this unbelievable adventure, I plan to sail to Iceland and America, in the wake of St Brendan the Navigator.
I will sail the Golden Globe Race in the wake of Irish man Conor O Brien. First yacht to circumnavigate the world by way of the three great capes. I have one of the best boats in the race, and many thousands of mile over the last 50yrs Bring it on.
