That would be wonderful. I will see if he has time, but I suspect that he is tied up on his newest project.
Jimmy Cornell’s new project: Aventura Zero & the Elcano Challenge
To commemorate the 500th anniversary of the first round the world voyage, Jimmy Cornell is preparing to sail the historic route of the first circumnavigation achieved by Ferdinand Magellan and Juan Sebastian Elcano. Elcano took over the leadership of the expedition when Magellan was killed in the Philippines, and completed the voyage in 1522. In recognition of that fact, this project is called the Elcano Challenge (Desafío Elcano).
A further aim of this challenging voyage is to be the first circumnavigation completed by a fully electric boat, something that would be very much in tune with the current concern for the environment. Jimmy’s fifth boat, Aventura Zero, is the prototype of the new Outremer 4Zero catamaran with zero carbon dioxide footprint at the heart of the concept.
