Earlier in this saga, I did mention an Indian Navy officer, Dilip Donde, who solo circumnavigated. Belatedly, (very!) he's home, and has been for a while.

"And the most important and cherished! A link to Sir Robin Knox-Johnston's blog on becoming the 175th. member of the exclusive Solo Circumnavigators' Club! I can't think of a greater honour than being personally welcomed by Sir Robin to this elite club!"

So here is the list. Note that Zac Sunderland is not included, due to Suez/Panama passages.

How many peeps have climbed Everest? A lot more than solo circumnavigators.
