Episode 3. First Solo Offshore Passage
In this episode, I discuss the start of the Velux 5 Oceans Solo Race Around the World. Safe to say it was not the slick operation you may have perceived if you were standing far enough away on start day. Huge headsails tear loose and I nearly dismast the boat, close calls with big ships & sleeping in 20-minute bursts it’s all here.

Who is the Mariner?
My name is Chris Stanmore-Major better known as CSM. I have over 300,000Nm experience in racing, cruising & expedition sailing and have raced twice around the world. I sailed solo around the world in the Velux 5 Oceans Race in 2011 (in Falcon’s sister ship) becoming the 182nd person ever to circumnavigate alone.
This Podcast channel is for sailors of all skill levels and backgrounds. My passion is seamanship & self-reliance and helping others realize their sailing dreams on their own boats – whatever size or shape of craft that may be.
