Re: Circumnavigation without instruments

Sheesh, tough crowd.

I think it's extremely admirable that this guy and his crew circumnavigated using only visual clues to guide them, such as stars, waves, water color, birds, cloud formations, the sun, planets, and currents.

The fact that he had navigational instruments on board but stowed away shows that he was not being reckless and irresponsible. He had a goal in mind and he completed it.
