Who is Nándor Fa?

Nándor Fa is a Hungarian navigator who sailed around the world several times. His first circumnavigation was with József Gál, between 1985 and 1987, aboard 'Szent Jupát', a boat they had built together in the early eighties. Together, they were the first Hungarians to sail around the world.

Between 1988 and 1990, Nándor Fa built another yacht, 'Alba Regia' with which he took part in the 1990-1991 BOC Challenge [needs reference/confirmation] and also the 1992-1993 Vendée Globe which he completed in 5th position, in 128 days 16 hours and 5 minutes. He also competed in the 1996-1997 edition of the Vendée Globe but a collision caused him to abort the race.

Nándor was awarded the Officer's Cross by Hungarian President Arpad Goncz.
