There are now 6 months to the start of the Vende Globe. Competitors race around the word single handed in high performance open 60's.
There are a couple of english speaking sailors in the race this year. One interesting campaign is run by Conrad Colman. He is a very low budget, living the dream kind of campaign. He is running a boat with an electric motor and solar and wind power. Also, you can donate to his campaign to help him live his dream.
