Circumnavigation without stop on an A35

Alain Delors, if he kept its timetable, sailed away for a circumnavigation. One more you say. Not this one. This one is a sportive one. Non Stop, on a small fast boat (A35), kind of a personal low budget Vendee Globe, with a low budget cost (140 000 euros).

Is this guy crazy? Well, he is a very good sailor, the A35 is a very seaworthy boat. He is not one of those that sail away without knowing almost anything about sailing, but he is 63 years old and want to make a record time so he plans to go higher than 50. Scary, at least for me

I wish him god luck, he is going to need it

You can follow the voyage here:
