Jason and Fiona - Trenelly
29th Jul 2013

Well, we finally made it back to Plymouth. As my sister said 'It's not exactly round the world in 80 days'!

However, we managed to fit in a brain tumour, 2 Atlantic crossings, 2 Panama Canal transits, a baby en route to New Zealand and even, finally, got to the Scilly Isles!!

Our final passage we took on extra Granny and Grandma crew to help us around from the river Yealm and John gamely waved the Cornish flag off the Breakwater to mark our triumphant return.

BBC Spotlight did try to contact us, but Jason had lost his phone and didn't find it until a week later, by which time we were, quite literally, old news!!

How did we manage to get ourselves around without more mishaps!!?

Upon telling Dylan he had sailed around the world and that Molly had sailed half way round.

Molly ; "I want to go ALL the way around the world"

Dylan ; "I'm not going round the world AGAIN!"

It didn't seem right that the real star of the show should go without.

You wouldn't think they just spent 12 years living together on a small boat.

29th Jul 2013  All of us did it!
Dylan and Molly still struggling with the enormity of their achievement.

29th Jul 2013  Who are they?
We sailed a small boat around the world. We will never forget the things we saw and did, and the people we met along the way.
