Its life signs closely resembles the life signs of a Dodo bird

I am just curious if anybody completed circumnavigation on mini. People did it in all kind of floating things not necessarily designed to be an ocean yacht. Just curious, yeah mushrooms good:-).

I know for one - slovenian guy called Jure Šterk cicumnavigated the globe on tradewinds route twice!! He was sailing on a copy of aincent Coco. He also competed in 79 (abd) and I think 87 and 89 Minitransats. Allways finishing on the tail of the fleet but he obviously had the spirit.
Very different profile to todays mini sailors. We would call him f$$% mad.
Oh btw. he tried to do his third ccnv trough southern ocean but stoped in capetown.

yes, hard to beat that, especially as the travel lift scale in Capetown showed 3.600kg when lifting his Coco... reinforcements and a bunch of canned food
