Ahead of its bows, the Statue of Liberty will mark the starting point, with no less than 13,225 nautical miles to cover non-stop to reach San Francisco - via Cape Horn, just to spice up the challenge. This record is a first: the objective is to reach the goal without stopping! At first glance, the project may sound somewhat suicidal... but in fact, Ryan's proa has already made a round trip from the United States to New Zealand and is well prepared, with features such fiber standing rigging, and furlers from Colligo Marine. As for photos, we shouldn't be disappointed: Montreal-based Sailor Productions will be capturing images from this 60-day journey to produce a one-hour documentary, 2Oceans1Rock.
