At the Boot Dusseldorf we could meet Jimmy Cornell personally. He is one of the greatest blue water gurus and has sailed more than 200’000 miles including 3 circumnavigations.
Thousands of sailors have realised their dreams with his help, whether through his books or his rallies like the ARC. Unstoppable he goes his way. His latest project is the “Blue Planet Odyssey” where bluewater sailors are traveling together, help each other and raise awareness of the global effects of climate change and the state of the ocean.
In 1975 he launched his first big trip together with his family on “Aventura”. In the first rally ARC which he organised he sailed himself with his Aventura II. In 1998 he launched an OVNI 43, and he sailed in the Antarctica but also to Alaska. In 2014 he launched his fourth boat, the Exploration 45 of Garcia.
