Josh Slocum. If you recall he left home a second time, he's just not back yet.

I'm going to be the first guy to circumnavigate without telling anyone.

Re: Preparing to Beat Jesse martins World Record

In a little-publicized event 9-month old Spanky 'Rudderrat' Martinez completed a non-stop solo circumnavigation. This happened in 1996.

In this file photo you can see 'Rudderrat's' arrival at the dock.

Notice 'Rudderrat's' safety precautions as evidenced by his wearing of a state-of-the-art W.A.F.F.L.E.R. suit.

Visualize the vastness of the oceans; the infinity of the heavens; the fickleness of the wind; the artistry of the craft and the frailty of the sailor. The oneness that may be achieved through the harmony of these things may lead one to enlightenment. - Flying Welshman
