A big WOOT WOOT to Ian Thompson!! Ian just set a World Record: Fastest Solo Circumnavigation of Australia.
Ian's time: 42 days, 5 hours, 30 minutes, 2 seconds. The previous record: 68 days, 8 hours, 1 minute.
As you know, in PBBR's previous article, Ian's goal was to come in at 50 days - but he beat even that goal. Ian also intended to bring attention to the problem of plastic bags in our oceans. (Watch video: What Plastic Bags Really Do To Marine Animals) He has achieved that goal also.
Ian says he now plans to establish the Save Our Seas Foundation Australia, a non-profit organization. He also stated other plans for the future. Go to Ian's website, SOSOceanRacing.com, to learn more about Ian, his record setting voyage, and his plans for the future.
CONGRATULATIONS IAN !!
