Bernard Moitessier

I'm not trying to take anything away from Sir Robin Knox-Johnson, he did win and finish the race. He has also done so many great things since. He recently completed a solo round the world race in 2006 taking him only 67 days. A lot shorter than the 312 it took him in the late 60's. Not bad for a 67 year old. Moitessier's story is also compelling. He actually crossed his outbound track before Johnson crossed his, and then sailed non-stop another halfway around the world to Tahiti. All of this with telephone poles for masts.
