One more story from the Golden Globe Race: soon after Kirsten Neuschafer made history with her win in the Golden Globe solo round the world sailing race, another contender came across the finish line, a day later.

His story is a startling and amazing true tale: Abilash Tomy, Indian Navy officer, aviator, and accomplished long distance sailor. He came back from a tragic accident in the last GGR in 2018, a traumatic event that left him initially unable to walk. Four years later, he came back to compete in what is probably the most grueling boat race in the world, and after 8 months at sea and many setbacks, made it across the finish line to win second place.
