Re: 76-year-old begins solo circumnavigation

Can someone explain what record he was trying to break? I thought the oldest circumnavigator was this man:
Saito Challenge: 2008-2011

Ok it looks like Saito would have been 74 when he did his circumnavigation, but what is the Dr. Paris trying to do, break a speed and age record? Is this a mono hull record or could Paris have used a cat or trimaran?
