Vendee Globe

Nick Maloney was the first person to compete in offshore yachting’s three greatest challenges; the Vendee Globe, the Whitbread/Volvo Ocean Race, and the Jules Verne Trophy.

Share his experiences aboard his IMOCA 60 as he sailed around the world, non-stop.

Nick’s journey alone against the elements in one of sport’s toughest challenges will hopefully provide some entertainment and perspective for those of us suffering a case of cabin fever during the current global health situation.

Being alone on a yacht for months at a time, thousands of miles from help, is as much a test of seamanship as it is mental strength and a true lesson in the meaning of the word ‘isolation.’
