La longue route 2018 To follow this beautiful Bernard Moitessier's spirit of pilgrimage around the world.
"In 2018 and 2019, in order to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the Longue Route of Bernard Moitessier and to pay a tribute to the great sailor he was, the navigator Guy Bernardin proposed to other enthusiasts to sail again around the world by the three capes, alone and without calls.
"According to the spirit of Bernard Moitessier, this round the world is not a race: it's a pilgrimage, there is no regulation, no constraints, no obligations, no price either ... Just the ultimate reward to have realized a dream and to have transcended oneself. It is a return to the true values, personal human responsibilities of every man and every sailor. The freedom, the serenity of being at sea, alone facing the ocean."
