(January 13, 2019; Day 14) – Alex Alley (GBR) continues on his quest to break the Solo Non-Stop Around the World Record in his 40-foot yacht – Pixel Flyer. After enjoying perfect conditions during the first couple days after his December 31 start, he then experienced a couple of days of calm off Portugal before getting into the Trade Winds. He is now sailing at 8 to 10 knots most of the time in his descent of the North Atlantic with his position today at 18:00 south of Cape Verde islands and 13° north of the equator.

With the help of crowdfunding, Alex Alley (GBR) is aiming to break the Solo Non-Stop Around the World Record in his 40-foot yacht – Pixel Flyer.

His goal is to better the 2013 record set by Guo Chuan of 137d 20h 01m 57s, beginning his quest December 31 when he crossed the official start line between the Créac’h lighthouse on the island of Ushant and the Lizard lighthouse in Cornwall in the English Channel.

With his start at 14h 31mins 09 sec (subject to ratification by the World Sailing Speed Record Council), if he is to beat Chuan’s record (and he has to beat it by at least one minute), then his deadline is to cross the line again going the other way, on at 10h 32mins 06 secs on May 18, 2019.
