It is the longest race on Earth for an individual in any sport. The Around Alone course spans 27,000 miles of the world's roughest and most remote oceans. It is a grueling singlehanded sailing race where competitors are both the captain and crew, and the finish line is literally a world away. It starts and ends in Charleston and you can follow the race on line.
