Swirly World: The solo voyages
By Andrew Fagan

When `Mockers' rock star Andrew Fagan bought a little yacht called Swirly World in Perpetuity, it was the beginning of a beautiful friendship. The 5.2 metre Swirly World, painted a distinctive pea-green, became Andrew's trusted travelling companion. Together they embarked on a series of solo voyages, challenging `the darkness beyond Devonport'.

Following the example of his sailing idol, `South Sea Vagabond' Johnnie Wray, Andrew sailed to Sunday Island and back. A voyage to Wellington followed, but weather and musical ambitions conspired to deny him the achievement of circumnavigating New Zealand. But it was when he entered Swirly World in the Solo Tasman Race from New Plymouth to Mooloolaba that people started taking a keen interest in his sailing exploits. Racing against much larger craft, Andrew finally finished the voyage long after the other competitors, and went on to complete the return journey, creating a record for the smallest vessel ever to have made a return crossing of the Tasman.
