schermata-2016-11-23-a-11-08-10 One left on October 15 from Cagliari. Alone, on a Class 40, for a nonstop round-the-world trip. No rush, just the desire to realize the dream he has been cultivating for a lifetime. The other is part of the fierce and daring sailors taking part in the Vendée Globe, the legendary solo circumnavigation of the globe on the “naughty” IMOCA 60, and dropped its moorings in Les Sables d’Olonne, Vendée, on November 6. And now, they met in the middle of the South Atlantic. At sunset yesterday, Gaetano Mura spotted the silhouette of a sailboat, which turned out to be the 60-foot Finistere Mer Vent, owned by Jean Le Cam. Both sailors were excited about this intersection that was as beautiful as it was unexpected. This beautiful video recounts the close encounter from the perspective of both Mura (aboard Italy) and Le Cam, with their voices in radio contact.

According to weather routier forecasts, Gaetano Mura could round Cape of Good Hope between December 1 and 2. “We’ll keep each other company tonight, he told me over the radio.”, Mura recounted. He passed so close to me that we talked verbally and took each other’s photos. He complimented Italy, “C’est un beau bateau,” Italy got excited. Bon vent, Jean et bonne course – Bon tour du monde a toi!”
