Windeward Bound is tied in many ways to the great explorer, Matthew Flinders. Her 2002 circumnavigation of Australia following in Flinders' footsteps - or wake, as it were - is only one. This past week marked the bi-centenary of his death, and the unveiling of a statue in London's Euston Station depicting him kneeling over a map of Australia with Trim the cat (another thing we both have in common!)
In Flinders' honour, we have unearthed Windeward Bound's original website which was devoted to the Matthew Flinders Circumnavigation Voyage. Please click the link and have a look around!
