On the 20th of February 2005, Conrad Humphreys became only the 5th British sailor in history to complete the Vendée Globe race. He crossed the finish line after 104 days alone at sea in what has been acknowledged as one of the most remarkable comebacks of this legendary race. Humphreys set out from Les Sables D'Olonne, France in November 2004 with 19 competitors to race non-stop and without assistance around the world. After 25 days at sea, Conrad was about to enter the cold, desolate waters of the Southern Ocean when he hit a submerged object at speed. Flung across the cabin, the impact of the collision smashed one of his twin rudders and as he limped towards Cape Town to make repairs everyone thought that Conrad's race was over…..everyone except Conrad and his team.
Conrad’s remarkable story is one of courage, determination and triumph that will enthral and inspire all who watch it.
