Around the World Record

Henrik is on the way to break the non-stop solo Around the World Record for 40-foot monohulls.

He will make the attempt in his Class 40, CROIX DU SUD, in accordance with the rules of the World Sailing Speed Record Council (WSSRC), who will time the start and finish on the line between Point Lissard and Ile de Ouessant.

Additionally, a ‘WSSRC Black Box’ will be installed on the boat to record data from his attempt to break the existing record of 137 days, 20 hours, 01 minute, 57 seconds set by Chinese sailor Guo Chuan in 2013. The 48-year-old Guo departed his hometown of Qingdao, China on November 18, 2012 and returned on April 5, 2013.
