Summary
More people have walked on the moon than have successfully completed a westabout circumnavigation. In 2006, Caffari became the first woman to sail solo around the world against the prevailing winds and currents, braving physical hardship in terrible conditions, overcoming solitude, sleep deprivation, the worry of crucial equipment failing, 34 days of gales, 12 metre waves, cyclones and a lightning strike
