Aventura’s Logs

Jimmy Cornell building a new Aventura to sail in Blue Planet Odyssey

Aventura I Aventura II Aventura III Aventura IV

Participants in all Jimmy’s previous round the world events ended up as a large family with strong bonds being forged while being part of a joint adventure.

I feel that the same will happen in this Odyssey,’ says Jimmy, ‘and I want to be the first to be regarded as part of that family. So I have decided to sail in my own boat thus keeping up the tradition started by Aventura II, which sailed in the first round the world rally in 1991-92 and was followed by Aventura III in the Millennium Odyssey.

The new Aventura IV is now on the drawing board of a well known French naval architect, who has promised to have the initial design ready by January 15. Progress on the boat, which Jimmy calls his ‘new baby’, will be featured regularly on the Blue Planet Odyssey website.
