    Re: Circum nav solo with sextant and paper chart

    But going through the Panama Canal would not count  as solo unassisted
    non-stop circumnavigation!  All the Imocas in the Vandee Globe who got
    to Cape Horn look like they will finish now. Quite a few failed
    earlier.  It seems the Horn is no longer the insurmountable challenge
    it used to be, perhaps with modern weather routing.
    Bill King, another Irish single handed circumnavigator, did get
    demasted around the Horn one of his attempts.
