    My grandfather went around the Horn on a sailing ship in the early 1900s. He was 13 at the time.

    I spent a week on Arathusa in the Medway twice, when I lived in London. It was an amazing experience and I envied the boys who lived on her. I never did find out where they went, when we were there....
