Bernard Moitessier has now left the port of Plymouth on its steel ketch of 12 meters, Joshua. Like his friend, Loick Fougeron on Captain Brown, he is preparing to embark on the round the world solo race, the Golden Globe, organized by the Sunday Times.
The initial deadline was set by the organizers at October 30th. On August 28th, in the general indifference, Bernard and Loïck leave Plymouth for a race that will prove punctuated by tragedies but still won by Robin Knox-Johnston on his ketch Suhaili. Bernard, once at Cape Horn, 5th of February 1969, makes a landmark decision. He continues its course eastward to cross again the Indian Ocean and then the Pacific before heading to Tahiti.
A legend was born.
