Why the GGR?

I remember seeing the GGR2018 race in progress and made a wish to enter GGR2022 but financially and
mentally not ready. Now I’m ready to compete in GGR2026. I’ve always wanted to sail ever since I was in
lower grade school, but the cost was very prohibitive to my parent. After my 2nd job, I joined a local race
team in LaSalle, Ontario for round-the-can race along Detroit River. I got hooked since then. I’ve wanted to do sailing around the world since moving to Vancouver, Canada about 15 years ago before joining GGR
idea. That desire grew stronger during my ocean racing with 4 separate teams in the last 6+ years. There are many cues that had fallen in-line leading up to this decision, but the biggest few factors to give it a go are while I’m physically capable to do something great for myself, and to give hope to families, friends, co-workers, strangers around me and around the world to dream big and go for it! One shot to the greatness and it’s GGR2026!

Best and worst aspects

The best is the dream of completing it. I will be the 1st Canadian Melayu to complete a single handed non-stop unassisted race around the world. The worst part is the financial commitment for an individual without sponsorship backing which can be very daunting.

The Boat

Isa will be sailing Olleanna, Jeremy Bagshaw‘s OE32 from the 2022/23 GGR. Olleanna was also skippered by Are Wiig in the 2018/19 GGR.
