Royal Perth Yacht Club are delighted to let you know that Jon Sanders has decided to undertake a record breaking 10th circumnavigation of the planet leaving in October this year. The Club has taken an active role in each of Jon’s circumnavigations and when he approached the Club about supporting his Swan Song Voyage and 10th Circumnavigation of the World, we didn’t hesitate to say yes.
We are delighted to be managing and coordinating the campaign to get Perie Banou II back in ship shape condition and provide Jon with a safe passage to create history by becoming the only person to have circumnavigated the planet 10 times.
As I’m sure you’re aware getting a boat ready for the voyage that Jon is going to be undertaking is a massive task and we will be approaching members of the boating and larger Western Australian community for assistance. If you would like to be involved, we’d be delighted to hear from you.
The Club will be holding a fundraising dinner for Jon.
We have also set up a crowd funding account if you would like to make a donation which you can access below.
