He's done it! I did a post about him when he set off - so here's one when he has arrived. Sir Robin Knox-Johnston, at the ripe old age of 75, has arrived in Guadeloupe in his 60ft yacht 'Grey Power', after coming Third in the solo trans-Atlantic race Route de Rhum.
He was the first man to sail solo and non-stop round the world in 1968/9. He says about this recent race that he is 'absolutely over the moon to come third. It is quite fantastic.' All I can say is well done Sir Robin - I absolutely agree with you. Three cheers for all of us oldies.
And while we are on the subject of 'honours' for G B - well done too to Lewis Hamilton on becoming World Champion in Formula 1 for the second time. Wonder what he will do when he is 75.
