Pete Goss and the crew of Spirit of Mystery have had a rough passage. The 37 foot Spirit is on a trip from Cornwall England to Melbourne Australia that commemorates a voyage 154 years ago in a similar craft.
They have had numerous days of gale conditions crossing the Southern Ocean. On March 3rd, about 300 miles from Kangaroo Island, they were struck by a large wave. Mark Maidment, one of the crew, broke his ankle. Mark was med-evacuated today.
Pete and his son are continuing on to Melbourne. The latest blog entries are here.
