SAILING AROUND THE world is considered one of the greatest challenges mariners can face. But what about from top to bottom? Peter Edington, an RYA yachtmaster instructor with more than 50,000 ocean miles beneath his keel, will skipper a yacht that will sail some of the most challenging and some of the most waters on the planet. Beginning in early 2015, they will follow the sun from the world’s southernmost city, Ushuaia in Argentina, north to Hammerfest, Norway, 400 miles inside the Arctic Circle. The 60-foot yacht and its crew will face Cape Horn and retrace the Viking route from Ireland to Arctic Norway as well as cruise through the Caribbean. They plan to leave New Zealand for a one-month journey to Ushuaia before they complete the Shackleton centenary leg from South Georgia back to Ushuaia in early 2015. Reckon you’re game? Edington is looking for likely lads and lasses to join his crew on all legs of this amazing adventure. www.theoceansailingclub.org Ends of the earth Loquax is a 60-foot, ultra-light cruiser designed and built in England, in 1992 in GRP.
