Slower voyage round the world

Readers may be interested in another trip round the world, but at a pace much slower than Alan's forthcoming dash. David Scott Cowper has set off in his specially built 14 metre steel motor boat, "Polar Bound" to make a three year solo circumnavigation, including two winters icebound in the Arctic.
His voyage can be followed on

Perhaps Alan can wave at him as he passes Polar Bound en route
