79 year old sailing 15k miles in a really small boat...

Now this is something a bit different... A whole new chapter in the "go small, go now" narrative.

"79 year old to sail 15,000 miles in a very small, truly unique boat".

The boat... Exlex: 5.76 meters long, 1.04 meter beam.

Check out his website. Scroll down to see an interview...
Welcome to Yrvindīs website Ė small boat designer, builder, sailor & writer

Free book download (english) from this free thinker and unique small boat designer...
"WITH FOUR SQUARE METERS OF SAIL AND ONE OAR"

I take my hat off to this gentleman and wish him an amazing and safe journey!

Yep, been following him for a bit -- he’s not new to long distance trekking… I believe he was planning to compete in the Around-in-Ten project some years back and then decided he was making too many compromises/accommodations just to satisfy rules – he decided his own motives were all wrong, cut up the boat as I recall, and went back to what he obviously likes…
