Round the World

Jean-Luc Van Den Heede has rounded the Cape of Good Hope and has now returned to the Atlantic in his westabout single-handed circumnavigation record attempt, Here is the latest from Adrien.

Well, I've done it! I'm in the Atlantic. I went by the Cape of Good Hope at 2.44 CET having passed Cape Agulhas, the southernmost tip of Africa at 7.40CET. Philippe Monnet took 118 days 0 hours and 7 mins, whereas I took 92 days 2 hours and 22 mins, which takes my lead to 25 days, 21 hours and 45 minutes.

I'm currently sailing with a 35/40 knot wind behind me...just as off Cape Horn, so I'm going very quickly. Well well !

See you tomorrow,

Jean Luc Van Den Heede
