A victorious Bernard Stamm wins the VELUX 5 Oceans race. The solo Swiss sailor led all three legs, aboard his yacht Cheminees Poujoulat during the race and arrived into Bilbao, Basque Region, Spain in first place today to take the outright win on this final leg from Norfolk, Virginia, USA. He won the race four years ago and again proved to be unstoppable on this edition of the race. 
The VELUX 5 Oceans is the longest and toughest event, for any individual in any sport. In 2006, the event gets tougher. The legs between ports get longer. The stopovers are fewer and more compact - with a shorter window of preparation for the next leg. And, by the end of it the skippers will have sailed 30,000 miles of ocean alone, facing all the extremes that nature can throw at them.

Barcelona World RaceStamm tar en runde til

Det er ikke mange ukene siden Bernard Stamm vant Velux 5 Oceans. Nå har han bekreftet at han er klar for nok en tur jorden rundt. Han tar med seg briten Conrad Humpreys i Barcelona World Race.

Den sveitsiske shorthanded seileren Bernard Stamm er tydeligvis umettelig på jorden rundt seilaser. Han vant nylig soloseilasen Velux 5 Oceans for andre gang på rad.

ERFARING. I november starter han på nok en rundtur. Denne gangen nonstopp og sammen med Conrad Humpreys. Begge to har tre jordomseilinger hver under beltet, og må regnes som en av favorittene.

Men i Barcelona World Race er alle favoritter for det er nemlig eliten som har meldt seg på. I alt 8 tomannslag er påmeldt så langt, og det er godt mulig det dukker opp ytterligere et par prosjekter.

Samlet har de 16 seilerne utrolige 44 jordomseilinger bak seg.
