🚗🚗🚗Direction Paris en voiture pour le Nautic - Salon nautique de Paris ⛵️qui ouvre ses portes demain.
Mon quartier général pendant tout le salon sera établi sur le stand de NVequipment (Hall 2-1 stand L22).
Entre 15h et 17h je serai sur le stand de Voiles et Voiliers pour dédicacer mon livre publié par les Editions Stock
🥇🥈🥉et le soir j’assisterai à l’élection du «Marin de l’année» je ne fais pas partie des nominés puisque la Fédération Française de Voile organisatrice de cette récompense, n’a pas souhaité s’intéresser à la Golden Globe Race
In September 2018, Tomy had sailed into hurricane force conditions in the most remote and uncharted part of the Indian Ocean.To mark the anniversary of his accident Tomy this year took part in a 50 kilometre kayaking race in Goa, which he said he won
"I recently won a small championship in Goa. Within one year of breaking my spine, I did 50 kilometres of kayaking. That was to mark the first anniversary of my accident. I am trying to get back in the same race in 2022. It is the 75th anniversary of Independence," he said.
Commander Abhilash Tommy and wife URMI with a real GGR family if you know the story. It was a race to see if Tomy could reach Les Sables d'Olonne before the baby was born. In the end he cut the corner and returned home faster as a VIP.. Now part of GGR History, not just a fairy-tale. :)...hoping to see him return in #GGR2022.When the Navy Day was a happy one! ...

Anders Eriksson thought about entering the #2018GGR but his yacht was aLongue Route 2018 officielwas solid, so he took the Longue Route 2018 officiel and had a grand, interesting and successful adventure as one of the few to complete a non-stop solo. I enjoyed following him. A great guy who has now written a book, that was itself another challenge.. Bravo... :) ... See MoreSee Less
If I could only read it would be FANTASTIC...the first #GGR2018 Book written from Home and at SeaUku Randmaa and sailor....I will have to wait till Uku Randmaa makes an English audio translation book????..we can dream too...A beautiful GGR Family. :)Signature time!!!

Yes I was really hoping it would come out in English too. JLVDH'S books also. We are missing some great books. If I knew a Translator I would get the books translated for them, but I do not know a translator that could do it. There might be a job opportunity there for someone who knows French, Estonian, and English. 😢
Yes,it would be wonderful to read. looking forward.
Yes hope to see a translation in English, it would be great to read the book!
How can I get a copy of this book? I can read Estonian!
Hopefully a movie in the making. I love the cover photo.
I'm still hoping that Mark Slats' book will be published in English soon😀!
Seguro que la traducción al español demora más.....
Mark Slats just went around Cape Horn..a year ago!! :) #GGR2018Throw back Monday: exactly one year ago I rounded Cape Horn in the Golden Globe Race. It took me 153 days to get there, rounding the third and final Cape. No time to take pictures (which wasn't even possible as it was pitch dark), keep on going: pushing my boat and myself. I needed to catch up with someone ;-)
What an adventure! What a race! When I relive these moments I get highly motivated in whatever I'm doing, such an adrenaline rush still!
Thanks for the reminder Don. I remember that day. What a race!!!
The nail biting days of the G.G.R... Where is Susie Goodall, she disappeared from her followers..She got rescued about a year ago and promised a full detailed report of what did happen..That was a very tense time period, just to get around the Cape Horn..Thanks again Mark and Don for sharing..
Tapio Lehtinen Sailing The last sail of the season was done yesterday in chilly conditions but warm spirits with an enthusiastic group of friends of Galiana. Almost 100 sailors have joined us for the home delivery from the UK, two trips to Tallinn and a number of weekend daysails, thank you everyone! Thanks Ville Norra again for the video! My ambition is to recruit a Finnish crew for the 2023 Ocean Globe Race (www.oceangloberace.com) with most sailors being 20-35 yrs during the race. The main selection criteria will be right attitude and physical condition. Sailing and especially helming skills gained in dinghy & off shore racing are most important but also special skills (sails, rig, engine, electrical, shipwright, medical, cooking, photo/video etc) will be taken into consideration. Interested aspirants can contact me through email, email@example.com. The plan is to grow a fairly big crew pool, offer sailing opportunities for the interested and select the final OGR crew only after enough sailing has been done. The main objective of the Galiana OGR -project is to increase interest towards ocean racing and to pass on the legacy of the Finnish Whitbread RTWR sailors to a new group of next generation sailors. Thanks Ville Norra again for the video and the songs. ... See MoreSee Less
The #GGR2018 created strong interest and it is happening again with the #OGR2023 so if you know of anyone who is thinking about it??? please Share to them as the last 24hrs there is a lot happening... and Yes we are surprised.. thanks Don.I cannot think of any easy way to say this.... WE ARE EXPERIENCING A RUSH ON ENTRIES AND SERIOUS INQUIRY...so if your thinking of entering the Ocean Globe Race ...please be aware....and share this to your friends as I know there are many people planning campaigns and some may miss out and may need to join the wait list...To be fair to ADVENTURE CLASS entrants we have decided to NOT now reduce it to 8 and leave it open till January 1st 2020 unless we hit 12 entrants before then. Today we are at 8 entrants. Thanks for the passion and support... ... See MoreSee Less
The #GGR2022 team of David, Sebastion and me ( Jane is working from China) were at the YRF flying the flag and many were very interested in GGR updates :) ..it is a powerful Forum and great to catch up with friends and supporters.
Huge thank you to our partners, our 80+ speakers and our 365 delegates. The Yacht Racing Forum 2019 has been insightful, fun, informative; it's opened up great business opportunities for all participants.
If you couldn't make it to Bilbao, make sure to discover the video produced by our partner Sunset+Vine. And Save the Date for next year: Portsmouth, UK, November 23-24, 2020. ... See MoreSee Less
Une petite serie de portraits de quelques personnes, des gens , plus ou moins ordinaires ,plus ou moins champions , dans la lumiere ou dans l ombre ,mais , des gens extraordinaires comme beaucoup dans ce que l on peut vivre passionément
Conférence du 22/11/19 organisée par l'Association des Plaisanciers du Port de Vannes a été une pleine réussite ! :)
" Le grand amphithéâtre de la maison des associations était bondé et son auditoire était passionné, que les participants soient navigateurs ou encore tout simplement intéressés par la navigation. La Golden Globe Race de 2018 nous a été contée, autant sur les aspects techniques de la course (type de bateau, équipements, instruments de bord...) que sur la vie à bord (définition de la route, ravitaillement, eau...) ainsi que le démâtage, le sauvetage et la perte du bateau aux abords de l'Australie. Une expérience forte que nous a fait partager Loïc, dont le projet réaffirmé est de préparer la prochaine course de 2022. " William Cousin
Daniel Gatt #GGR2022 entrant from MALTA just purchased a Biscay 36 from ArsènGuy DeBoeril, an early retiring #GGR2018 entrant. Guy DeBoer has just purchased a Tashiba 36 in America, so there are now 22 yachts in the GGR SUHAILI fleet and only three entrants yet to decide. WE Also have started a Waitlist and inquiries for GGR are still strong. There are currently four Special Invitations yet to offer.THE BIG REVEAL:
Finally closed the deal for the boat that’s going to compete with me during the GGR2022. She’s a Biscay 36 built in 1989. She needs some prep but is a fast and solid boat which I believe is going to be a match for any other on the start line. I’m so happy 🕺🕺...now for the admin and getting the boat home to Malta. @ Brittany, France ... See MoreSee Less
cool, but i wonder why most of all skipper's take the same type of boat , to do the glolden globe race ? , how many steel boat are they? i have to look your site , i am busy studying my licence radio , for fébruary 27 ,

I have been watching with great interest the big changes in the solo sailing world over the last decade or two in regards to competitors and their home countries, that is one of the things that I love about the GGR is the diversity of the competitors and their back stories. I guess you could say I came of age in sailing when solo sailing was dominated by the French and there were a handful of very capable French women sailing as well! I think they are all fixated on multihulls now... i'd suspect it is hard to compete for sponsors, fame and publicity with the Ultimes. I miss Tony Bullimore and other Rascals like him in the sailing world... probably why I like Igor zaretsky and Jean Luc
Wish I could read it
How many entrants from the US?
Would be great to get the GGR trophy back in British hands..... but we do need a few more French competitors to make it really worthwhile! 😉👍
looks like french have nothing to proove.. :)
Les sponsors peut être ❓
Ou des objectifs plus "payants" ‼️
