It is not a race for the faint hearted. The Golden Globe Race is a non-stop, solo, retro race around the world. 30 000 miles with no outside assistance and only “old school” navigation and equipment allowed.
A South African entry for
GGR2022 and a lifelong sailor
“I was introduced to sailing by my father when I was about six years old and have been sailing ever since. I have sailed all over the world and have done many races, crossings and deliveries, but this race will be my biggest challenge yet.” – Jeremy Bagshaw.
This race is just something I can't refuse to do.
Jeremy has over 100,000 nautical miles experience, with more than 70% as Skipper, on a large variety of yachts in some of the most treacherous waters on the planet. This experience has been gained, not in an accelerated training course, but through putting in many hard miles, learning from some of the best yachtsmen in the country and around the world.
The majority of Jeremy’s sailing has been done along the East and West coasts of South Africa and the islands of the Indian Ocean but also coastal Argentina and Chilean Tierra del Fuego. He’s crossed the South Atlantic, North Atlantic and Indian Oceans and sailed in the Mediterranean and the Baltic, which which will give him invaluable experience to take on an event like the Golden Globe Race, GGR2022.
“I think this Golden Globe Race is a wonderful idea. Why dream of it and never do it. This is a challenge that has been created to achieve that dream.” – Sir Robin Knox-Johnston
