Jules Verne Round the World Sailing Challenge

 

Matters to do with the care of the land and surrounding seas are in a state of severe depression. Farming in the UK is currently in the worst depression since the 1930’s. Fishing the seas has never been so threatened. Both thanks to political machinations of one kind or another.

Ellen MacArthur is an inspiration in terms of endeavour to overcome adversity (1).

The Jules Verne Trophy is awarded for the fastest time around the world non-stop under sail. You go when you like, and with what kind of craft you like as long as it sails. You go with whoever you like and with as many as you like. It is the fiercest challenge in yachting that there is.
