In this final episode with Rory Rory talks about completing is circumnavigation.

This is from Rory’s website http://www.roryandcookie.com/about.html

“In 1989 Rory McDougall had a dream. Inspired by Laurent Bourgnon who crossed the Atlantic in a Hobie 18 catamaran, Rory had the burning passion to sail

around the world on the smallest catamaran and multihulled sailboat.

Rory tried for 2 years to get support and sponsorship to create a high-tech event to circumnavigate the world on an open-deck beach catamaran. Fantastic

support came from TIMBERLAND, NORTH SAILS UK, RIGEL COMPASSES, BROOKES & GATEHOUSE in the form of products – but no boat to float them on!! In the end it

made sense to choose a less extreme catamaran that had living space below and gave a low-tech and low-expense way of getting afloat. The Wharram Tiki 21

design was the perfect choice.
