We’re delighted to let you know that Jon Sanders has decided to undertake a record breaking 10th circumnavigation of the planet leaving in October this year.  

Jon is and has been a member of Royal Perth Yacht Club (http://www.rpyc.com.au) for 62 years and they proudly call him their “favourite son”.

RPYC has been the home of Perie Banou, Parry Endeavour & Perie Banou II, which is penned at the Club. The Club has taken an active role in each of Jon’s circumnavigations and when he approached the Club about supporting his Swan Song Voyage and 10th Circumnavigation of the World, they didn’t hesitate to say yes.

RPYC will be managing and coordinating the campaign to get Perie Banou II back in ship shape condition and to provide Jon with a safe passage to create history by becoming the only person to have circumnavigated the planet 10 times.

Getting a boat ready for the voyage that Jon is going to be undertaking is a massive task and RPYC will be approaching members of the boating and larger Western Australian community for assistance.  If you would like to be involved, they'd be delighted to hear from you.  Please contact Kelly on 9423 5500.

The Club will be holding a fundraising dinner for Jon on 7th July 2016. If you are interested in attending then please phone Kelly on 9423 5500 or alternatively email the club: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

The club have also set up a crowd funding account if you would like to make a donation which you can access via this link http://gogetfunding.com/jonsanders/
