Guy Waites Golden Globe Race 2022

I began sailing 27 years ago from Ramsgate on the East Kent coastline, from the beginning my passion for sailing has never left me, sailing has been the common thread that has intertwined my life.

Since those early days I was fascinated by the world of the singlehanded sailor, reading many accounts of the first Golden Globe Race in 1968, ultimately there was only one finisher and winner of the 1968 race, Sir Robin Knox-Johnston.

I have now secured the boat for my campaign, a Tradewind 35 called “Sagarmatha” and will continue to qualify and prepare for my singlehanded non-stop circumnavigation of the globe as an official entrant in the Golden Globe Race 2022.

And I need your help too!
