'Embrace your passion': Confinement tips from French barrel sailor

Frenchman Jean-Jacques Savin, 73, made a splash last year by crossing the Atlantic alone in a custom-built barrel, a 127-day trip that was followed by thousands via his regular Facebook posts. In an interview with AFP, the former paratrooper revealed his tactics for fending off cabin fever after France issued strict stay-at-home orders this week to fight the coronavirus outbreak. Savin spent four months in a barrel with just six square metres (65 square feet) of cramped living space.
