I am not sure how many days had passed but when I heard its engine I was pretty certain that I would be out of this soon. Australia, from what I am given to understand, hired a business jet to overfly and check on me. The arrival of the Osiris on the 24th was announced by the voice of Lucas Jocou who knocked and asked if he had permission to come in. I told him they were angels. The Osiris, named after the Egyptian god of life, death and afterlife, was on its last mission after which she would be put out of commission.
She was patrolling off Kerguelen when her skipper was told about the accident. They rushed at what best speed through the storm. Later, the Osiris proceeded to pick up Gregor. I met him in the evening when he came by to say hello.

It was only a few days ago that I had teased him to polish his rearview mirrors when we crossed each other on our own yachts. How luck had turned! We both had lost our little ships to find ourselves in the same boat. Already one year ago!! What a pity that that beautiful double-ender, which also proved to be a surprisingly swift yacht, was lost.
Happily enough her great skipper survived.

Very worthwhile to read about the actual chain of events and circumstances as you experienced them Abhilash. You kept us all tied to the news sources hoping for a good outcome. I added a pic of your boat when it was in preparation in Medemblik. A special anniversary for Abhilash Tommy and also Gregor McGuckin when that one storm cause more than the usual Adventure..
I did not know what to expect but what I got was a mixed bag- the thrill of running down competition from behind, ending with abandoning the my boat midway. It was this day in last year that I met with a storm and an accident in the south Indian Ocean. My wife, who was pregnant at that time, and my mother stood like rocks betraying no emotion. After the rescue and surgery it fell upon my wife to bring me back on my feet. And she did it rather well because I was back in office within two months and when we had our buoy in March I could carry him myself.
To mark the anniversary of my accident I am going kayaking 25 kms today. Urmi is already stressed but not showing it. You have inspired the next generation of sailors, who may someday compete in the GGR. Another interesting wave story that is certain GGR Hurricane Dorian probably whipped up a foot rogue wave near Newfoundland.

Knox-Johnston was the sole finisher in the Sunday Times Golden Globe solo round the world race, having set out from Falmouth, England on 14th June aboard his tiny 32ft ketch Suhaili. It was a time when the Flat Earth Society was still in existence, and even seasoned yachtsman thought it to be an impossible feat.
For everyone else it was; Robin was the sole finisher among 9 starters to complete this 30, mile supreme endurance race, organised by the Sunday Times newspaper. Circa Knox-Johnston returned on 22nd of April completing the 30, mile voyage in days, averaging 4.

Good news I do hope he will recover and sail again soon Best wishes to Igor. Will Kingston Beach be the drop-off point again in ? So sorry about Igor. Any news on a book about the GGR or release of documentary? I am going to sail the race with the Swan 55 yawl Galiana, which is the biggest boat fitting in the smallest of the three OGR classes, the Olin Stephens designed Swan 55 being in my opinion the classiest and most beautiful of the Nautor built Swans.
The mission of my OGR project is to get a group of next generation, year old Finnish sailors who have graduated through the youth racing classes, introduced to the Southern Ocean and the round the world racing scene in order to secure the continuation of the Finnish round the world sailing legacy dating back to the days of the Gustaf Erikson windjammers. Galiana will be sailed home to Helsinki from Southampton on If you are interested in participating in the Galiana OGR project, send me an email to tapio.
