1.Another male bastion is giving way. The Navy has firmed up its plans to embark on all-women circumnavigation under sail in August 2017, in a bid to push the frontiers of gender constructs. Six women naval officers shortlisted for the historic voyage are training under the first Indian solo circumnavigator on a sail boat, Commander Dilip Donde.

2.A whole new sloop, of the class of the legendaryINSV Mhadei with over one-lakh nautical miles under the keel and two circumnavigations behind it, is being built for the purpose. (Cdr Abhilash Tomy took the boat on a non-stop, unassisted solo circumnavigation in the wake of Cdr Donde’s feat).
