Sir Robin Knox-Johnston's boat

The UK’s most famous yacht, the 32ft ketch Suhaili, will be at the Southampton Boat Show from 12-21 September. The round-the-world yacht will be alongside the main stage.

She was made famous by Sir Robin Knox-Johnston in 1968-69 when he sailed her solo,non-stop round the world in the Sunday Times Golden Globe Race.

The gruelling race saw off many competitors and caused the death of one – Donald Crowhurst – and the current issue of YM has a 10-page special on Crowhurst and his fateful voyage to mark the 40th anniversary of the race.
