I grew up following the story of Robin Lee Graham in National Geographic as he started sailing around the world at the age of 16 in 1965. 30,000 miles and 5 years later ......it was a great story filled with all the crazy things that could go wrong on such an adventure. It was an inspiring story where a lot of preparation paid off. No sat phones or GPS just a compass, sextant, charts and two kittens. I pulled the following image from a google search I did for him today. Sadly, once he returned to land....things did not turn out well for him.
