Abhilash Tomy


When Abhilash arrived at the gateway of India on 31 March 2013 he became the only Indian to have successfully completed single-handed and nonstop unassisted circumnavigation of the earth under sail. Abhilash had just spent one hundred and fifty-one days alone at sea sailing around the world in a 17-meter sailboat. In these five months, he had to face severe storms, extreme heat and cold, enormous waves, and life-threatening situations all by himself. Six days later on 6 April 2013, Abhilash was accorded a ceremonial reception by the Hon'ble President of India Siri pronounced Mukherjee.
