Thankyou for your support of the Daniel Turner - 2025 Mini Globe Race Campaign.


The idea of competing in the race has been in place since the day it was conceptualised 3 years ago. I ordered yacht plans the day they became available and have been slowly building the boat now for 2 1/2 years whilst working full time and raising a family.


The boat is now essentially finished although in order to compete in the race I am hoping to raise funds to assist with costs of getting to the start line and being less of a burden on my wife due to being at sea for the best part of 18 months without employment.


Your assistance will go towards one of the following (List as of July 2023):

  • Shipping boat to Portugal (Approx. Aug 2024)
  • Survival Suit
  • Seabrake / Anchors etc.
  • Medical equipment
  • Safety Equipment i.e. flares / PLBs / EPIRBS
  • Lithium Batteries
  • Life Raft
  • Remaining Navigational Equipment
  • Australian Registration, Insurance, SA Registration etc
  • Bunks
  • Canvass style Dodger
  • Remaining electrical equipment
  • Charts / Navigation Books / Other documentation
  • Food for the race
  • Other Race Costs i.e. marina fees, transport across Panama etc


This race will be history in the making and the first race of its kind around the world for mini yachts... Perhaps, the only one that will happen.


Anyone that provides a donation will have their name written on the inside the cabin for the duration of the race and any substantial donation will be considered (on how I can show my gratitude accordingly). i.e. Sailing day on the boat, public speaking at an event, decal stickers of your business on the boat etc.


I will personally get in touch to see how I can make your donation worthwhile.


In relation to the race itself:


The start of the MGR will be from Antigua following a Transpac qualifier from Lagos, Portugal in December 2024. The entrants will sail around the world west about, in four legs via the traditional trade wind route. Mass restarts will take place for each leg, the start date set approximately two weeks after 25% of the fleet has arrived. An entrant MUST stop for at least seven days in a pit stop port, but can stay longer with the clock restarting after seven days. An entrant can stop in any other non-scheduled port, but the clock keeps running.

  •  Globe 5.80 Transat: Lagos to Antigua 3,000 mile Qualifier
  •  Leg 1: START Antigua to Panama 1,300 miles – 30-days truck across – Total 1,300 miles
  •  Leg 2: Panama to any islands – 8-day pit stop – Tahiti 4,400 miles – 7-day pit stop – to Tonga 1,300 miles – 8-day pit stop – to Fiji 600 miles 21 days – Total 6,400 miles
  •  Leg 3: Fiji to Darwin 3,000 miles – 8-day pit stop – to Mauritius 4,300 miles – 10-day pitstop – to Durban plus 2 = 14 days pitstops to Cape Town 2,400 miles 21 – Total 9,700 miles
  •  Leg 4: Cape Town to St. Helena 1,900 miles – 8-day pit stop – to Receife 2,400 miles – 8-day pit stop – to Antigua 1,600 miles FINISH – Total 5,900 miles
