28. July 1996-26. July 1998

Norbert has started his single-handed circumnavigation of 2 years and approximately 26,000 nautical miles on 28.07.1996 in the Italian port Grado and he has successfully arrived at the port of departure on 26.07.1998.

Those two years were full of the struggle against the forces of nature, solitude, private, and financial problems. But these two years earned him a global recognition, he was the first Austrian skipper who sailed around the world and allowed him to enter into the international professional sailing scene.
