The route isn't tough, it's nuts.

East to west in the Southern Ocean??? What is he thinking???

He ought to look out for all the Jules Verne/Vendee Globe/Around Alone/Volvo boats going in the opposite direction. And the internet is laden with all the awe-inspiring pictures of those guys in heavy duty weather running . . . . . . downwind

Well found or no, this man is going to have interesting stories to tell by the time he gets home.
