After crossing an entire ocean Sergio Davì stopped a day ago in the Canadian port of Halifax for safety reasons. The navigator arrived at the Armadale Yacht Club, whose staff promptly secured all the boats, for the arrival of Hurricane Dorian, which already last night did not delay in making its effects felt.

No damage for Davì
The commander reassures us that there has been no damage either to him or to his rib. Dorian is losing power and has been downgraded to a post-tropical cyclone, but has not stopped doing damage: Halifax has been armored and without electricity for many hours and a crane of a skyscraper under construction has been knocked down.

Always closer to New York and the record
After the danger, Sergio Davì got back on track with his Prince 38 Cabin Nuova Jolly, pushed by two outboards Suzuki DF350A, 350 horses for one. The navigation is proceeding well, as shown by this photo taken last night when it started again.

The world record is getting closer after each mile: about 6,500, in about 75 days (including stops) for total navigation of about 500/600 hours.


The Palermo-New York record in a rib is just around the corner. After following an Atlantic route of over 6,500 nautical miles and passing through the Faroe Islands, Iceland, Greenland (and the icebergs CLICK HERE), Sergio Davì is close to arriving in the USA.
