Another 40 class boat cruising around the globe and this one on a slow voyage in a very interesting project where you can participate: Want to sail or race on a Jumbo 40class racer, learning to sail with a very experienced sailor and discovering the world in the process?
That seems very seductive to me
. The story is like that: Alexis Guillaume a French racing sailor with many races and the founder of "Sailing Away" sail school (1995) decided to take by the letter the name of that school and sailed away on a 4 year project of circumnavigation around the world with some racing a bit everywhere on the way.
He still teach sailing and he accepts on his boat students/crew for racing or cursing along, kind of a very special kind of "charter"
The idea seems great to me and Guillaume seems to be a nice guy. The images speak for themselves:
