Re: Small boat voyaging

well, it is more than fair to talk about Alessandro di Benedetto:

Circumnavigated nonstop in a 22ft boat, a modified mini racer. Broke the mast in a big storm at midway. Jury rigged the boat (at sea) and went away to complete his circumnavigation.

The French have a big admiration for the guy (he is Italian) and they have the best solo sailors.
He is going to make the next Vendee Globe, in an old Open 60. Old or not I bet that he is going to finish it
