Conrad Colman’s epic voyage in Vendée Globe 2016-2017 has been my highest interest when following this edition of the legendary solo race.
The gutsy skipper set a goal to his nonstop around the world race that is in my category greater than ranking in results – to be the first sailor to complete the race without using the fossil fuels.
Conrad has had a tough voyage but even losing his mast 793 nm before the finish line he is still going strong. The demonstration of a seamanship was shown when he successfully jury rigged his boat after hundred days of solo racing.
Edit 19.6.: Conrad reached Sables d’Olonne on 24.2.2017!
