Dunedin sailor Stanley Paris is to have another go at sailing towards a record.

Paris, who earlier this year failed in his bid to become the oldest man to circumnavigate the world by yacht, has told the Otago Daily Times he will try again in November.

The 76-year-old told the newspaper he would take with him lessons learned from his first attempt, which he was forced to abandon because of equipment failure.
