Michael Davy He was scheduled to be part of the upcoming Golden Globe race, which is scheduled to begin at Les Sables-d’Olonne in September 2022.

Unfortunately, the captain of Australia was greatly disappointed. While sailing north of New Zealand, more specifically in Tasman Bay, as part of his preparation for the Golden Globes (GGR), his boat ran aground.

Partly because of a storm in which the captain and his ship, The Dream Catcher, have drifted onto a rock.
