Circumnavigation of the World : 69147 Nautical miles

For around the world sailing records, there is a rule saying that the length must be at least 21,600 nautical miles calculated along the shortest possible track from the starting port and back that does not cross land and does not go below 63°S. It is allowed to have one single way-point to lengthen the calculated track. The equator must be crossed.

My journey will be approximately 69,000 nautical miles and expected to take about 5 years to complete. The adventure will start in Seattle Washington and transit the Pacific Ocean, Coral Sea, South China Sea, Indian Ocean, Red Sea, Mediterranean Sea, Atlantic Ocean, Caribbean Sea. It calls for landfall on six continents, all except Antarctica.

There are some that say I am no Joshua Slocum and that is true, but I am a Nomad and know how to survive in the wild. I have been destined to wander the world from the moment of my birth. This is my time to fulfill my destiny.

Then come aboard and join me to set sail for adventure, the like of which ye’ve never spied in all yer days.
