Enjoying our coverage of Jon Sanders’ triple circumnaviation of the world? Sanders is about to set sail on a new adventure:
‘Yachting legend Jon Sanders and his faithful SV Perie Banou II are taking one last circumnavigation of the world. This will be yet another record-breaking feat, his 10th voyage around planet earth.
Jon will be setting sail on this historic voyage from Fremantle, Western Australia during October 2016. He plans to return to Fremantle one year later after circumnavigating the world. This circumnavigation will include two formal races. The Dirk Hartog Island Race, celebrating the 400th anniversary of the landing by Dutch voyagers on Australian shores, commences 15th October 2016. The 2017 Cape Town to Rio de Janeiro Race, a 3,600 nautical mile race across the South Atlantic, commences January 2017. A crew will be supporting Jon in these two races. Jon will sail solo for the majority of the voyage.’
