In preparation for his forthcoming circumnavigation with the Blue Planet Odyssey round the world rally, Jimmy Cornell completed this summer a grueling test of his new  45 foot Aventura, an Exploration 45 aluminum centreboard yacht built by Garcia Yachting in France. 

A 8500 miles North Atlantic voyage took him from London to Greenland, the Northwest Passage in Arctic Canada, and on to Annapolis in time for this year’s show.

Anyone interested in this revolutionary cruising boat, conceived by Jimmy Cornell as “a boat for all seas and all seasons“, is welcome to meet Jimmy on board Aventura, exhibited in Annapolis by Garcia Yachting and Swiftsure Yachts (Dock D)
