SAILING legends were quizzed when they visited a primary school in Gosport.

Dee Caffari, the first woman to sail single-handedly around the world non-stop in both directions and Sir Robin Knox-Johnston, the first man to sail around the world single-handedly non-stop went to Alverstoke Junior School last week.

For the last 18 months the school has been involved in the Aware project, following sailing races including the Barcelona World Race and the Vendee Globe.

And the two sailing superheroes were grilled over their success and what it is like to be a globe-crossing sailor.

The school was recently visited by Mike Golding after he finished the Vendee Globe, beaten by Gosport’s own Alex Thomson.
