VIDEO | Basil Diethelm (part 1)

Basil Diethelm is a 59 year member of the CYCA and has crossed the Atlantic 13 times under sail. By Peter Shipway’s estimate, it is unlikely that any other member of the CYCA has logged more sea miles than Basil.

The content guide for part 1 starts with early days at the CYCA, 1963 sailing on Enid in the Sydney Hobart, becoming a dentist, the 1965 Fastnet Yacht Race, sailing around the world on Saraband, thoughts on piracy, sailing and working in Europe and finishing with the 1979 Fastnet Yacht Race.
