The Ultimate Solo Challenge

The VELUX 5 Oceans is the oldest, most established, continuously run, single-handed round the world yacht race. It has taken place every four years since 1982.
The VELUX 5 Oceans is the longest and toughest event, for any individual in any sport. In 2006, the event gets tougher. The legs between ports get longer. The stopovers are fewer and more compact - with a shorter window of preparation for the next leg. And, by the end of it the skippers will have sailed 30,000 miles of ocean alone, facing all the extremes that nature can throw at them.
VELUX is one the strongest brands in the global building materials sector and is sold around the world. The VELUX Group has production companies in 10 countries and sales companies in nearly 40 countries. The Group is owned by VKR Holding A/S and, for competitive reasons, the financial results are incorporated into the VKR Group's consolidated accounts. In 2004, the VKR Group's total turnover was almost DKK 12.7 billion.
