We do not often SHARE others publicity on the #GGR2022 but this is a happy read (in FRENCH that Google Auto Translates to English or ??? and gives a good rendition). It shows how being “Inspired” by a person’s adventures can change your life. Arnaud, even before his ultimate Golden Globe challenge is already sharing his experience every Sunday on the VENDEE Marina in Les Sables d’Olonne. I am sure that many will be inspired by his dream and the third edition starting SEPT 4th just a few months away… BRAVO Arnaud….. 🙂…Follow his page if you want more..

Another Entrant ticks the all important box! Completing their 2000 mile solo qualifier in their entered yacht. It is an important milestone in making the start. There are many reasons to give up on a dream and the #GGR2022 pushes all those who enter to the limit. Not all those currently entered will make the start and some who do will not make the finish. The GGR is tough and all about the stories 🙂
