The day after I interviewed Susie Goodall (pg 30) she set sail across the Atlantic, alone, and I couldn´t get her out of my mind. Storms and high seas battered Lanzarote shortly afterwards, and it was wild enough on land, let alone a thousand miles out to sea. Susie’s tiny, and her boat Ariadne is about the length of two cars parked end-to-end, and its difficult to imagine the solitude that she might be feeling out there on the immense Atlantic, but happily, at the time of writing she’s still flying along towards Antigua. And the amazing thing is that this voyage is just a practice run for next year’s round-the-world Golden Globe race. If you have half an hour spare, I’d recommend going online and reading about the 1968 Golden Globe Race. It’s an incredible story of courage, desperation, suicide and glory, and Susie Goodall is, so far, the only woman who has signed up to repeat the 50th anniversary race next year.
