k, they just took down the record of sailing across the globe, without any stop, to 45 days… but, meh… from the perspective of doing “circumnavigation” of the world, they made a pretty strange path… I would have done something like the arrows I marked down, passing by Suez and Panama channels. Yes, this would have been delaying the enterprise, but seriously… crossing Cape Horn and Cape of Good Hope, come on… that was a challenge for the 17th century with wood boats, not for the carbon fiber monster used these days. Anyhow, if u look at the map, 90% of the fun was some long fast rides in the middle of the ocean: the dots on the colored paths are day markers, as u can see a long distance between dots, means they were going fast like hell

k, u need to click on the listing’s icon to see it…
This is a kind of sailing created for marketing and adv reasons only.
The true spirit of sailing is represented by these people:
P.S. the route you marked with the arrows could be defined cheating.
I wonder how you could define sailing through the Panama Canal and Suez.
