(Actualité) – Doors to Manual And Cross Check! Ari Huusela Has A Flight Plan Logged to Les Sables d’Olonne November 2020

Finnish skipper Aria Huusela has just delivered his IMOCA 60 from Gosport, England to his native Helsinki, his first long offshore passage on the boat which he aims to race around the world in the 2020 Vendée Globe, the Owen Clarke design which started life as Dee Caffari’s 2008-9 compeitor Aviva.

Huusela, 56 years old and a full time airline pilot knows he has a very steep learning curve to be ready for this Autumn’s classic Route du Rhum Destination Guadeloupe, but just as his profession – flying long haul flights to Asia - requires meticulous planning so Huusela knows exactly how he will undertake to be ready with the appropriate hard miles sailed before he embarks on his lifetime adventure.
