    CNN: The old man and the sea: 73-year-old to sail solo around world in 'bathtub' boat

    Ah, another way to do a non-flying RTW. I do not think a "bathtub" would be my preferred mode of travel, but I do applaud this guy for his tenacity in doing something different!

    From the article, it sounds like he's a pretty experienced Sailor. Would a small vessel really be safer than a larger one?
    :)
