Solo Around Australia sailor Bruce Arms starts today from Mooloolaba

'Solo Around Australia record attempt sailor, Bruce Arms'    Suzanne Arms

Sailing champion Bruce Arms is departing for his Solo Around Australia world record attempt from The Yacht Club at Mooloolaba Marina today, Sunday 10 July at 12 noon.

Arms, after months of hard work and preparation,says he is ready to embark on the epic voyage. He aims to create a world record by sailing solo around Australia in just 35 days in his 14 metre catamaran, Big Wave Rider.

He admits he is starting to get excited and a bit nervous at the same time, but is still really looking forward to the challenge ahead. 'The previous record was 42 days. I aim to reduce it by seven days.'

Arms says he will use his voyage to help raise awareness of SOS Ocean Racing, which was formed in 2010, to raise awareness of the damage to our environment through the use of plastic and plastic bags.
