I have been lurking for a few days on this thread. I would like to see it get better? I understand it was quite a feat of seamanship ! I did check that he had back up instuments and other reduncey. I have respect for the other sailer posting that has done a cercumnavigation. He also took a huge risk in todays world and did well. His risk is far beyond what I am willing at this time. Why even leave dry land if you do not have to ? Why fly a plane or ride in one ? Drive a car ? leave the house? If you have to explain they will not understand ! Kind regards, Lou
