  16. 16. WSSRC RulesRTW - Round the World, eastbound and westbound 21600NM. 2 separate records.To sail around the World, a vessel must start from and return to the same point, must cross all meridians of longitude and must cross theEquator. It may cross some but not all meridians more than once (i.e. two roundings of Antarctica do not count). The shortest orthodromictrack of the vessel must be at least 21,600 nautical miles in length calculated based on a perfect sphere. In calculating this distance, it is tobe assumed that the vessel will sail around Antarctica in latitude 63 degrees south.A vessel starting from any point where the direct orthodromic distance is too short shall pass one single island or other fixed point on arequired side so as to lengthen his orthodromic track to the minimum distance.No starting point will be permitted more south than 45 ° south.1 degree of longitude at 63 degrees south will be taken as 27.24NMWith or without assistanceWithout assistance means that a vessel may not receive any kind of outside assistance whatever except for 21.h. and 21. i. nor take onboard any supplies (beyond the harvest of the sea), materials or equipment during an attempt. A vessel may be anchored or beached duringthe attempt, but any repairs must be made entirely by the crew without outside resources or materials. It is never permitted to take onboard stores or equipment or get any other kind of help from another vessel whilst under way (except as i Emergencies below).SinglehandedSinglehanded means there is only one person aboard. If a singlehanded skipper accepts any kind of outside assistance (see 21e) then thevoyage falls into the "singlehanded with assistance" category. Full Circle
