Round Britain – meet the crew

Grumpy skipper wrestling with technology

Smartly dressed crew at his best

We have one amazing crewmember, Otto. He is sleek, black, powerful, doesn’t consume much, never complains about going on watch in the early morning and lives in the back beam. He is the indispensable autopilot, who has done most of the steering tirelessly for the trip. It would be quite tough and unpleasant having to hand steer all the way. I did that 27 years ago, but times have changed, and we prefer to sit and drink tea now!
