Magnolia man to hit the high seas

September 26th, 2008 · 40 Comments

For the next 8 months Jonathan McKee will be on a 37,000 mile journey around the world. As one of the world’s best sailors, he’s part of the American team racing in the Volvo Ocean Race. As a member of the 10-person team, McKee is a sail trimmer in charge of making the boat go fast. “VOR is something I wanted to do for several years — I guess it could put a cap to my career,” McKee tells the Seattle PI. The race kicks off on October 11th and will circumnavigate the globe starting in Alicante, Spain and traveling around Africa, up to India, Singapore and China before heading across the Pacific Ocean. Once around Cape Horn, the race will head up to Boston before heading back to Europe. Sailors are expected to reach the finish line is St. Petersburg, Russia by June 2009.
