Nice vignette on Robin Knox-Johnston on CNN news today. A comparison with today's solo non-stop record makes his accomplishment all the more amazing.
"Today's solo non-stop around the world record -- 42 days set by Frenchman Francois Gabart in a 100-foot trimaran in 2017 -- is 270 days faster than when Knox-Johnston, now aged 79, first took to the waves."
