Just a day after the start, the Englishman Alex, Ellie was forced to abort the attempt to set a new world record circumnavigation and solo non-stop for yachts 40 feet or less.
As we have mentioned, Ellie from November 1, waited in Gosport (on the South coast of England) favorable weather window. Finally, finally started on Tuesday.
However, according to the BBC, the next day on his yacht Pixel Flyer went out on the wind sensor. To replace it, the Englishman was forced to make a stop in the French Brest, where it is now.
In the coming days, Ellie is going to start in the new. Recall that the global circumnavigation record for yachts 40 feet in 2013 belongs to the Chinese Guo Chuan – 137 days, 20 hours, 1 minute and 57 seconds.
