Solo non stop circumnavigation on a 40ft mass production boat:

Tomasz Cichocky has finished without problems in 312 days its solo non-stop circumnavigation on a 40ft Delphia...and Jesus... not a word in English (except on the Delphia site) about that, not an English video on you tube...OK, I know the guy is Polish as the boat, but that is a pretty unusual feet taking in consideration that the “Captain” is an old salt, more than 50 year’s old.

Well, it is done, sailnet is the first to report that in English. I wish to send congratulations to the Captain. Really that is a big seamanship feat, not only in what regards seaworthiness but also in what regards boat autonomy. It had been done before but very few have managed to do that on a mass production 40ft boat.

Chapeau to the Polish Captain and to Delphia.
