Dice-man sailor off on 21 September

Dice-man sailor Rob Clark, 36, will set off around the world on a route decided by the roll of an internet dice ‘thrown’ by his readers on 21 September.

The dice-vote closes on 20 September and so far it’s looking like the traditional east-about circumnavigation around the Cape of Good Hope.

Rob is still trying to finalise his insurance for the trip aboard his Grand Soleil 42, Canasta, which is based at Wicor Marine in Portsmouth Harbour.
