Sanders stopped coronavirus
The question that many of our regular readers have the right to ask is: where is the 81-year-old Australian John Sanders, who went on his eleventh (!!!) solitary round-the-world trip at the beginning of November last year? What about him? Why doesn't Yacht Russia report anything about him?
We repent, and indeed have not been informed for a long time. For the simple reason that they themselves did not hear any news about Sanders swimming. The last message was a long time ago – at the very beginning of January, when the Australian stopped for repairs in Cape Town. After that – silence.
So maybe something happened to Sanders? Is he healthy? Does his 11th odyssey continue?
And now, thank God, we have the answers to all these questions. Alive, healthy. Continues.
More precisely, for two months now it has been anchored in one of the bays of the island of Saint-Martin in the Caribbean Sea and is waiting (after numerous telephone consultations with members of its Australian headquarters) when the pandemic will end in the world. Because Sanders will have to go through the Panama Canal, which means that a pilot and four mooring boats will have to board his Perie Banou II. What if they infect (in Panama, almost 200 coronavirus deaths)? It’s better not to risk it and spend some more time on the island.
This is the situation. Be sure: if we learn anything else about Sanders, be sure to let us know.
And here is what John Sanders and his previous circumnavigations tell visitors at the Western Australian Museum, which is located in Perth.
