For 10 months Keith will sail alone, heading south in the Atlantic, across the bay of Biscay, the Doldrums and into the southern hemisphere. Keith will brace himself for the perilous voyage across the Southern Oceans Indian and Pacific Oceans  with its huge swells, savage storms and tumultuous seas. Keith will then take on the mighty Cape Horn before finally sailing north up the Atlantic back to Great Britain.
