Another global site for cruisers - full of useful information.
The story of Alex Whitworth and Pete Crozier, who describe themselves as 'Two old farts in a battered old boat' and which they lovingly refer to as 'The Bus Shelter'. In 2005, this pair completed the Sydney to Hobart Race, turned eastwards and sailed around Cape Horn, stopping in the Falklands (just to run a marathon) before sailing on to England in order to enter the Fastnet Race. Following this, they sailed for home around the Cape of Good Hope, through the Southern Ocean and entered the Sydney to Hobart Race - all in the space of 12 months. Now, that's what you call "messing about in boats".
