Donald Crowhurst’s world tour, the “maritime drama of the century”!

In our last article published in July, we introduced the Golden Globe Race and more specifically its 2018 edition. To celebrate the 50th anniversary of this incredible race, a new world tour was organized with the same rules and sailing conditions as in 1968. By the way, the navigators are still navigating!

The GGR has become a legendary sporting event, making headlines in newspapers around the world during its first edition. Sir Robin Knox-Johnston, for the first time in history, was sailing around the world alone, without any stopover or assistance. A real feat for the time! But this mythical race has also become known for another reason. A tragic event from which is still called today the “maritime drama of the century”.
