Yvan Bourgnon’s voyage around the world

Yvan Bourgnon of Switzerland sailed his small 6.5 meter (~ 21 foot) catamaran 55,000 kilometers, around the world, in 220 days on the open water. As the the little sport catamaran didn’t have a cabin or on-board accommodation, the adventurer slept exposed to the elements.

Bourgnon documented his voyage and its ups and downs with his camera.
