Attempt nonstop around the world on 32.000nm

Today at 11:10 am the entire Innovation Yachts team, fans, colleagues and sailing aficionados saw innovator and skipper Norbert Sedlacek set sail on his lifetime mission to set a world record, unassisted, single-handed and nonstop around the world on 32.000nm of adventure.

This is his third attempt to tackle the biggest challenge of his career as a sailor. A trip around the world via the two poles and through the five oceans, an epic journey that he hopes to complete in 165 days to confirm the sustainable and recyclable materials with which he built his innovative 60-footer Open60AAL Innovation Yachts.

The adventure continues online on the www.ant-arctic-lab.com website where you can see Norbert’s progress, updated every four hours.

Ant Arctic Lab world record attempt, is a world’s first and means to sail around the world single-handed, non-stop and without assistance through all five oceans. This includes of course also the Arctic and Antarctic Ocean!
