The help of donations from anyone who is interested in watching the evolution of this endeavour, will go a long way towards my advancing towards the start-line of the Golden Globe Race in September 2022 - I cannot possibly get there on my own! Your support will be of paramount importance. This is, after all, a team-effort!

As part of my team, Dr. Mark Lindborg will be managing the donation funds raised through GOFundMe. Mark is a  US friend that joined my Pelagic crew exploring the coast of Newfoundland July 2019. He has set up a bank account  at Forte Bank in Hartford, Wisconsin, USA under his name , and Titled, " Kirsten Golden Globe Race". The bank has been informed as to the nature and   beneficiary of this account and is required by regulation to provide specific monitoring of the account. The funds will be distributed periodically, by inter-bank transfer, to a US bank account under Kirsten's name.

So, here’s to phase 1: USD 100,000! 

This race is a labour of love; of passion for sailing, for the oceans, for adventure and for human challenge…

With endless gratitude,
