Solo, non-stop around the world — in a Mini 6.5!

Is there anything that can’t be done in Minis?  Answer: no.

After the Atlantic in December 2002 (First single-handed transatlantic in the “20 feet sport” category (less than 20 feet sport catamaran without cabin), non stop, not assisted, approved by WSSRC/ISAF ) and the Pacific in August 2006 (World Record – North Pacific Ocean Crossing, single-handed, non stop, not assisted in the “20 feet sport” category, approved by WSSRC/ISAF) Alessandro Di Benedetto, a Franco-Italian geologist ,39 years old, decided to sail “around the world”.

He’s doing great so far, it would be good to get some more coverage of his effort, which is currently being overshadowed by today’s teenybopper brigade.
