yacht master 200 - oow 500
"Our circumnavigation ended at Southampton pier. It seemed a fine and large thing to have accomplished and I was privately proud of it.
Then came one report from the Observatory, whereby it appeared that another great body of light was travelling at a speed which would enable to do all that I had done, in a minute and a half.
Human pride is not worthwhile. There is always something lying in wait to take the wind out of it"
Mark Twain, Following the Equator.
