Between about 2003 and 2013, Jamie sailed about 50 000 miles on a 10 year trip around the world, in a Tophat 25′ called “Possibilities”. He travelled via the Three Great Southern Capes as well as some side trips such as three times across the Atlantic and a trip up the Amazon.
In the 1970’s my parents circumnavigated in a 25 foot Top Hat called Caprice. So I guess Jamie thought it was a good idea! On that trip, my brother Jamie Mitchell was born in Durban, South Africa and sailed 20,000 miles as a baby.
You can read about my parents circumnavigation in the book Two in a Top Hat.
My mother has written numerous sailing books. For more info see www.writingsfromjanmitchell.com
