One race, 19 sailors
The maximum of 19 participating boats all refer to the Suhaili, the winning boat of Sir Robin Know Johnston. These boats have a minimum weight of 6,5 ton and a length between 32 and 36 feet. These yachts are designed prior to 1988 and have a full-length keel with rudder attached to their trailing edge. Mark’s Maverick is the first Rustler 36 built, other boats participating such as the Tradewind 35, Cape Dory 36, Rustler 36, Westsail 32, Biscay 36, Aries 32 and Bowman 36.
‘Do not only have dreams, also make your dreams reality.’
Mark sold his house to be able to participate in the Golden Globe Race. Moreover, his rowing boat Peanuts, with which he broke the world record, is for sale to be able to afford being part of the Golden Globe Race. Mark has personally been involved in getting his Maverick ready; first, as it saved him money and second off all to be sure that his boat is in perfect condition to withstand the extreme conditions in for instance the South Pacific.
