Süchtig nach Segeln / Driven by the Sea
He finished the toughest race in the world. He was the first German to sail the Vendèe Globe solo and non-stop around the world, thrilling even non-sailors and providing spectators with an impressive and gripping race on the oceans.
There is no doubt about it: Boris Herrmann is probably the brightest star in the German extreme sailing sky at the moment. In numerous ocean races, he won his place among the sailing elite.
Boris Herrmann is also the man who sailed Greta Thunberg to the climate summit in New York - because the fight against climate change is at least as important to him as sailing at the limit, against time and against strong competition.
In "Nonstop. Driven by the Sea" you will learn everything about the exceptional talent in regatta sailing. From the background of his career to his dedication in the fight against climate change and his experiences at previous regattas to his greatest coup: being alone in the Vendée Globe, the toughest of all solo regattas.
