La Longue Route - Tony Curphey

La Logue Route is a circumnavigation according to the spirit of the great French sailor
Bernard Moitessier. It is not a race but it's a pilgrimage, there is no regulation, no constraints, no obligations, no price either ... Just the ultimate reward to have realised a dream. 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.

Arhur Beale was proud to be able to supply Tony Curphey, who is sailing Nicola Deux, with an Arthur Beale Beerenberg Oiled Wool Pullover plus a hat and a smock to keep him warm on the cold watches.

He won't be needing them just now as he approaches the equator at 09 degrees north!

We wish him every success in his grand adventure.
