Around Alone is the longest race on earth for any individual in any sport. Formerly the BOC Challenge, the Around Alone course spans 28,755 miles of the world's roughest and most remote oceans. It is a gruelling single-handed sailing race, one of the most difficult and dangerous conceived, in which competitors are both captain and crew and pit themselves and their craft against the elements. And it's a race in which the finish is literally a world away.
