Suomalainen tähtihetki

Maailman ympäri yksin ja ilman moderneja apuvälineitä.

Golden Globe Race 2018

Ennen oli tynnyrit puuta ja miehet rautaa.

Maailman ympäri on purjehdittu myös ennen navigaattoreita, satelliittipuheluita ja vedentuotantolaitteita. Ennen modernia teknologiaa se oli huomattavasti vaativampaa, riskialttiimpaa ja hitaampaa – mutta myös hurjempaa ja palkitsevampaa. Eikä matkaa sellaisena tehnyt kuin yksi ainoa ihminen, Sir Robin Knox-Johnston 50 vuotta sitten.

Mutta nyt se tehdään taas. Golden Globe Race 2018 -kisa starttaa 1.7.2018 ja 18 kilpailijan mukana on myös suomalainen Tapio Lehtinen.

Me seuraamme tällä sivustolla Tapion matkaa, jonka arvioidaan kestävän noin 300 päivää. Tiedossa on siis pitkä reissu yksin, vailla säännöllisiä yhteyksiä kotiin ja kisaorganisaatioon.

Seuraa matkaa

Pysy kartalla Tapion liikkeistä

Tässä voit seurata Tapion veneen GPS-signaalia, joka paikantaa hänet. Tällä hetkellä Tapion tarkka sijainti on:

LAT -50° 15' 47.05" S
LNG -99° 48' 30.74" W

Golden Globe Race -kilpailussa Tapio on sijalla 5.

Tapio Lehtinen

Yksi Suomen kokeneimmista avomeri­purjehtijoista

Koko ikänsä purjehtinut helsinkiläinen Tapio Lehtinen aloitti optimistijollalla seitsemävuotiaana. Helsingfors Segelsällskapin (HSS) ex kommodorin kokemus pitää sisällään kilpailemista Lasereista, 470:sistä ja 29erista köliveneisiin ja valtameripurjehdukseen, mukaanlukien yli kolmenkymmenen vuoden kilpailu-uran klassisella kuutosvene May Be IV:lla. Hän on purjehtinut 1981-1982 Whitbread Round the World -kilpailussa Skopbank of Finland -veneen vahtipäällikkönä, 1985 double handed Round Britain and Ireland kilpailussa, 1986 Twostar (myös kahden hengen miehistöllä) Atlantin yli kilpailussa, 1987 AZAB -kilpailussa Azoreille ja takaisin kahden hengen miehistöllä sekä 2014 Newport-Bermuda -kilpailussa.

Hän toteaa GGR:sta: “Osallistun rakkaudesta purjehdukseen, nautin merelläolosta. Hyväksyn haasteet, mutta en ole riskien ottaja. Pidän kunnia-asiana hyvää valmistautumista ja purjehtimista hyvän merimiestaidon mukaan. Olen kilpapurjehtija, mutta tiedän, että menestyäkseni tässä kilpailussa minun täytyy päästä maaliin.”

Kuulumisia

Näihin kuviin,
näihin tunnelmiin.

Hieman toisenlaisia päivityksiä ja selfieitä kuin tavallisesti. Kolmensadan päivän varrelle mahtuu kaikenlaista, pysy kartalla, sivusto päivittyy jatkuvasti.

Kannattaa vierailla täällä säännöllisesti. Ja sitten kun maaliintulon päivä koittaa, tiedossa on monenmoista mukavaa. Maailman ympäri kiertäneiden varusteiden huutokauppaa ynnä muuta.
