The Future is Electric, Jimmy Cornell

Jimmy will describe how, in late 2020, he completed a 4000-mile maiden voyage on his new Aventura Zero, a fully electric Outremer catamaran. The aim of the voyage was to test the sustainability of a sailing boat with electric propulsion on an offshore voyage, and whether the onboard consumption could be covered by the generation of electricity from renewable sources. This was achieved on the final nonstop 1500-mile leg from Tenerife to the south of France and, he says, shows that the future of cruising is definitely electric.
