Ten Indians sailed around the world in a yacht, covering 55,000 km in fifteen months and twelve days. The yacht was only 11m long and 3.25 m wide— Trishna. It was the first Indian sailing expedition around the world. All ten, including myself, were army officers from the Corps of Engineers, which is often considered a small navy within the Army. We work in and on water, constructing bridges and ferries and are familiar with crossing lakes, rivers and seas in crafts of different kinds.
