We will sail for a year through three oceans. In this table you will find our main steps:
Distances are expressed in nautical miles
|Cap Vert||November 2014||2500||2500|
|Canal de Panama||February 2015||1600||6600|
|Detroit de Torrès||August 2015||5500||17400|
|La Réunion||October 2015||5000||22400|
|Le Cap (Afrique du Sud)||November 2015||2500||24900|
|Cap Vert||March 2013||2800||27700|
Our departure is scheduled for September 2014. We will sail to the south, along the coasts of Europe and Africa to reach our first step, Cape Verde. Then we will begin our transatlantic journey in late November, to finally spend the New Year’s Eve in the Caribbean Sea.
In February 2015, we will cross the Panama Canal, and enter the Pacific Ocean. During the crossing of the vast and wild Pacific Ocean, we will stop by the Galapagos Islands, one of the last unspoilt natural sanctuaries of the world. We will follow the discoveries of the Marquesas Islands and Tahiti.
Eventually, after the Fiji and Tonga, our boat will enter Oceania. By traversing the Torres Strait between Australia and New Guinea in August 2015, we will reach the Indian Ocean.
The longest crossing of the circumnavigation will be from Australia to the Reunion Island. There we will face the blue and fiery waves for more than 5000 nautical miles, in an area where 10-meter troughs are not so rare.
We will have well-deserved breaks in Madagascar and South Africa before heading back north to sail up the Atlantic. After having left Cape Verde one year before, it will be an amazing moment to see it again and to complete there our world tour.
Ultimately, our journey will end in France after a year and a half.
