Approximate Finish Date June 2013
Starting Point Sandy Hook, New Jersey (USA)
Number of crew onboard 0
Total Distance 50 000 Nautical Miles(57 538 miles, 92 600 kms)

That sounds like an undertaking!

I can't even imagine, how!
I would like to do it alone on the simple side, but this is quite a trip. He will be out in the ocean for months...
Good luck to him and hope this adventure takes off...

I hope his navigation is better than his geographical knowledge.

They should start a club!
