A sailor is about to take a trip around the world on a homemade boat

(ORDO NEWS) — A Polish sailor living in the town of Lowicz, Marcin Klimczak, as a child, dreamed of making a real trip around the world. To do this, he wanted to use a boat or ship, and soon his dream will come true. He is about to embark on a long journey on his own boat, which he is currently building in his garage.

This is reported by fakt.pl.

The Pole plans to start his incredible journey this October. He will sail out of the city of Gdynia and will stay on the boat for about 300 days, without stopping in any of the ports. Marcin expects that he will be able to completely repeat the same route that was taken by Henrik Jaskula. In 1980, he became famous for becoming the first Pole and at the same time the third sailor who managed to independently sail around the world without visiting ports.

Marcin has been building his boat for two years. For her, he used pine, plywood sheets, a high-quality laminate covering, with the help of which he managed to achieve waterproof insulation. At the rear of the boat, he built a special structure for the installation of masts that would generate electricity using wind and light.

Despite the fact that the pandemic has somewhat slowed down the implementation of plans, the boat is almost ready for a long journey. The man is going to test her in just a couple of weeks.
