Follow Pete Goss

as he sails his 37 foot lugger to Melbourne. Spirit of Mystery is half way between Cornwall and Australia, recreating the voyage made by seven Cornishment who 154 years ago sailed to Australia to take part in the gold rush. Goss is a legend after sailing through a hurricane to rescue Raphael Dinelli on the 1996 Vendee Globe race.

Pete and his crew have 2329 miles to go, and you can follow their progress (50 knot storms and all) on his blog.
