John is now tantalisingly close to departing on a trip that will take him more than 30,000 nautical miles, across five oceans and further from civilisation than the international space station.

The Route

“My global solo circumnavigation is planned to be a “west-about” route from the UK, across the Atlantic, through the Caribbean and Panama Canal, before crossing the Pacific and Indian Oceans via New Zealand and Australia, before heading south to the Falkland Islands and South Georgia, then north and home, via St Helena, Ascension, and Tristan da Cunha.”

Barton supported John by providing him with a main sheet track system, bespoke Genoa tracks & cars, blocks & high load eyes.
