Dare To Dream

Boating enthusiasts should make a point of reading ‘Dare to Dream’ by Ia The book details the logistics of Thomson’s record setting solo circumnavigation of Australia. What’s most intriguing about the book is how candidly Thomson relates his mindset and motivations.

Another fascinating feature of the book and the trip is how quickly the journey came together. In January 2010 Thomson decided he wanted to undertake the journey, but didn’t even have a boat. Within months he was able to get a boat and equipment, and completed the journey by mid-June. I don’t think I’ll ever be as gutsy as Thomson, but perhaps I’ll plan to motor around the local lake in a two-stroke outboard motor, lubricated with Yamalube 2M oil.
