Re: Circumnavigation without instruments
You do realize this was done in 1984, near 30 years ago. Reading what I have I must say there was a lot of luck involved, but with the back up of instruments locked in a box just in case.
I must admit that on my Pacific crossing there were some times I would only check my position once or twice a day, but only when well away from land. I did use the compass a lot more than I would have thought, this I found out when the compass light failed.
