Sailors of note

Jessica Watson arrived back in Sydney last weekend. I don't care about "official" rules about circumnavigations, she sailed from Sydney to Sydney and crossed the Equator. If she'd done the voyage around the Northern Hemisphere, no-one would have quibbled.

Dennis Conner, the bad boy of America's Cup, is selling his gorgeous vintage yacht and restoring a smaller replacement.
Dennis Conner's new boat - Fame, c. 1910.

The Phoenecia expedition is nearing the end of its circumnavigation of Africa.
