Wave Warrior. It may not be a legendary, fearsome Norse God, but it is the name of a 67ft yacht to successfully circumnavigate the globe as part of the 1997 BT Global Challenge. This race, held every four years, saw a fleet of yachts crewed by ordinary men and women sail round Cape Horn and across the Southern Ocean. This route, often referred to as the ‘wrong way’, was unique in the world of ocean racing, taking the westward route to battle against prevailing winds and currents.
