MARK SLATS

Second Place at The Golden Globe Race

After rowing across the Atlantic by himself in just 30 days, Mark just finished the Golden Globe Race, coming in at second place after sailing more than 200 days non-stop across the world đŸ’Ș

Mark says he is very happy he had his headsail on hooks which probably was winning factor. He is very happy with his SUNBEAMsystem solar panels which provided power flawlessly during the whole race. Solar panels were one of the very few modern equipments allowed in this race. SUNBEAMsystem is proud to support Mark on his adventures.

Check out the amazing video with some highlights of his adventure:
