>A bit of background on Dilip Donde and his solo sail around the world.

>Yet again, YouTube comes to the rescue with a bit of background on the sailor from Mumbai that is sailing around the world.  The video gives a good feel for the yacht, which looks like a good one to make such a voyage.   This is certainly a more powerful boat than the older design that Jessica Watson is aboard.

Dilip has been thrashing into unusual easterlies for the last few days, making for a very uncomfortable ride. It seems that the weather forecast will have a shift to more normal westerly winds soon.

    >Hello,

    Thanks for this video. I am following the adventure of Dilip Donde but its the first time that I have seen him and his yacht.

    Best wishes from Spain.

    ( I have a friend who is preparing the same trip "solo circumnavigation" from Spain.

  2. >to say that his boat is more advanced than jessica watson's only diminishes dilip's image. young jessica's journey is non-stop while dilip keeps halting at several places. while i have a great respect for dilip, i do believe that jessica is a different class altogether. please don't compare the two.
