Anyone with a few minutes to spare should visit the website of Ellen McArthur who is sailing around the world in a single handed record attempt. The girl's courage is mind blowing, and the webcam shots show how dangerous the seas are. There was an exellent shot of her as she sailed past the Falkland Islands taken from a Lynx helicopter belonging to HMS Gloscester,(shown in the background).

Solo circumnavigation is definitely a daunting task. People have been doing it for a long time since Joshua Slocum first did it in 1895-1898.

There are races, with stages as well as non-stop like the Vendee Globe

Another successful mad British woman is Emma Richards. We were at Hermitage Academy around the same time.
