Canadian Chris Fornier sailing non-stop, alone, around the globe
Little Sark, a 30-foot sailboat, is equipped with solar panels, wind generator, 500 litres of water in 20-litre cans, 200 pounds of food, a solar still, sextant, an electric motor and generator. An inflatable kayak equipped with sail and rudder is for emergency use. Chris also has an e-reader, lots of music, and a 360-degree camera with binaural mic to document the trip in real time.
Chris has sailed since he was 12 and has his Yachtmaster licence. With a bit of humour, his friends gave him a Wilson volleyball to take along. Follow his voyage online at http://sailor.life.
