list of solo circumnavigators

Anybody know how up to date the below list is?

joshua slocum society list

Is Donna Lange really the person to do it since 2005? Didn't some kid from Australia complete a solo circumnavigation recently?

It is a pretty illustrious line up of sailors.

The list is missing a lot of people. For instance, Dee Caffari, Ellen MacArthur, Donna Lange (who just completed hers), and Francis Joyon should all be in there... but they're not listed.

A more complete listing, IMHO, is the one found here. Neither list is close to complete, since each has several that the other is missing, and there are probably people not on either of these two lists.

Ken Gourlay, a 51-year old business man from Tasmania, is scheduled to finish a circumnavigation sometime this week or so... You can read more about him here.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Fellow by the name of Ken Gourlay is about to or has just finished a solo circumnavigation. He's not a young bloke and I don't know of any youngsters who have done it recently.



ps - he arrived home on the 6th May 07.

Looks that way SD.

Happens all the time. I'm usually on line here from the office. I'll start replying to something, take a call, answer a couple of emails, speak with client in showroom, finish post, send it off and lo and behold some wanker with too much time on his hands and training wheels on his boat beats me to it. Life is sooooo unfair.

Oh and SVS3, the Slocum site relies on the circumnavigator volunteering the info to them so their are bound to be quite a few ommissions in particular the big budget sponsored boats. I think they are also more after the indovidual who plods around the globe in their own quiet way.

Exactly who are you calling a wanker... and my boat does not have training wheels...those are water wings... only an dumb lazy rodent-wannabe would think they were training wheels.... everyone else knows that wheels have no place on a boat.

Water wings, training wheels, crutches, walking stick, call 'em what you will. All do the same thing, keep the unstable from falling over........now if you'll excuse me I need to run away..... ever so quickly......
