American solo sailor making her way around the globe

The last time Linda Pasquariello was in the Australian town of Bundy, she was here to recover her stricken yacht, which was left sitting high and dry on a footpath following the Christmas floods a year ago.

But the sailor arrived in town on a happier mission this week — a solo sailing trip around the world.

"I left San Francisco in July and went to Hawaii, Tonga and then on to Bundy," Pasquariello told the News-Mail this week. "Then I'll head to Darwin to the Indian Ocean over to South Africa."
