With his boat in tatters, the adventure was in a sorry state. His first idea was to try and find a sport cat locally, and to prepare it to finish his round the world voyage. “I only have 5,000 miles left to cover in protected waters (Red Sea and Mediterranean) before crossing the finish line in Les Sables d’Olonne, so I think the hardest part is behind me...” Obviously, seen like that!
But finally, Yvan has chosen to rebuild his boat. To realize this feat, he has found some new sponsors, and above all, launched a big crowd funding campaign on the internet. The hulls of the new boat will be rebuilt in France, at Caen. The other parts of the catamaran will be manufactured in Sri Lanka, from where Yvan will set off again at the end of January 2015, for an estimated arrival next March.
