Chris Stanmore-Major has already been twice round the world, as a skipper with the Clipper Race, then solo in the Velux Five-Oceans Race. Now, with over 300,000 offshore miles under his keel, he's attempting to circumnavigate again, this time solo, nonstop and against the prevailing Southern Ocean wind and seas.

It's crunch time for Chris' pre-departure Chris in his RTW attempt through GoFundMe or on his Patreon page.
