    Re: velux 5 oceans race

    Dear all,
    
    as far as I can remember Robin Knox Johnston may have the first person
    who sailed non-stop around the world alone arriving at the harbour
    where he left, but the first single handed circumnavigator seems to
    have been Joshua Slocum. And the first person who has sailed around the
    globe crossing his outbound track - which I would qualify as sailing
    around the world - was Bernard Moitessier. He was in the same race with
    Knox-Johnston - I think even in the lead - but chose not to return to
    the starting point but to sail on to Polynesia. When he dropped his
    anchor there it certainly was the longest leg ever sailed by one person
    alone.
    
    Regards,
    Wolfgang
