Andrea Fanfani’s face may be a bit hollowed out and sunburned, but in his eyes is all the satisfaction of someone who has made the right choice.

ANDREA’S ADVENTURE
Andrea, who is 50 years old and from Milan, had left last August, aboard his Marchi 47 Tatì, from La Rochelle by the Longue Route, a nonstop, “unhurried” solo round-the-world trip (this is the tribute that the late Guy Bernardin had decided to pay Moitissier on the 50th anniversary of his round-the-world trip).

We had presented his story HERE. He made it all the way to South Africa, then had a really bad time, as he had told us HERE. Wind gusting over 70 knots, waves that Andrea said were reaching the height of Tatì’s mast (18 meters). The boat lay at 90 degrees four times!

He thus made the decision in the Mediterranean by sailing up the Atlantic, giving up sailing in the South Seas and Cape Horn (“But I’m happy as I am, I have no regrets, after all, I still have at least two and a half months of sailing ahead of me!”). Now, from Cadiz, back in Europe by now (after a stop in St. Helena), he tells us in two videos about his adventure and shows us the state of the boat!
