Here's a quote from it:
"He'd had a go at Rockall once before, with his friend, the clubbable castaway Ben Fogle, but the weather had been too tricky and they had turned their sailboat back..."
Just a small footnote on this for those who might (sadly perhaps?) be interested. There is no such thing as a "sailboat" in UK English; as far as I know it is an Americanism, and a pretty ugly one at that. The Guardian also recently used "finish line" in a major headline. American English doesn't use "-ing" in the same way as we do so this is a plea to use it where it belongs.
As I said, for those who might be interested! By the way, I am open to correction/argument on this.
