After being the first man to sail the world non-stop in the wrong direction, Chay Blyth returned to the UK.
Usually, the race would go with the winds, from west to east; however, Blyth decided to do it the opposite way and became the first man to complete a full loop. In 1992 Blyth created the first "wrong way" yacht race around the world, and since then, this race is held every four years.
