Round the world on a sport catamaran: here we go again!
We left Yvan Bourgnon after his shipwreck on the coasts of Sri Lanka, when he had already completed two thirds of his completely crazy challenge: sailing round the world, singlehanded, on a sport catamaran.
Next March, the sailor will therefore be setting off from Sri Lanka aboard his new sport catamaran, to finish his round the world trip. The aim is to reach Ouistreham Riva-Bella, passing a good distance off Djibouti (and its pirates), then going through the Suez Canal, before sailing round Europe via the Mediterranean and the Atlantic.
If everything goes well, he should arrive in May or June 2015.
