article-1160628-03CBC450000005DC-741_468x735 A British man has sailed from Cornwall to Australia in a boat that he made himself. The journey was an attempt to recreate the voyage made by 7 men in a wooden boat more than 150 years ago. Pete Goss set sail in November and finally completed the voyage last week. In total the boat took 116 days to reach its destination with a weeks break in Cape Town for repairs. Not bad for a boat with no engine or modern navigational system.
