Singlehanded non-stop around the world

01 september 2024 will Martin be going for the adventure of his life. A non-stop singlehanded sailing adventure around the world, from Norway to Norway. Non-stop means no stopping. Not touching land, not dropping anchor. No supplies will be given underway, all food, drinks and all spare parts will be carried onboard. From Norway the trip goes over the north sea, north of Shetland and into the Atlantic ocean. Where the compass needle will be pointing South until the westerly winds is found again. Around 40 degrees south. Odin will then be pointing east for the next 5 months. Passing south of South-Africa, Australia, New-Zealand and South-America. Not before the old path is crossed and an great circle is drawn at the globe, will the course be altered and finally be set back north towards Norway again.

Ruten rundt jorden
