Falmouth yachtsman Paddy Macklin back from world trip

Cornish based sailor Paddy Macklin has completed his 17-month round-the-world journey and arrived in Falmouth.

The 52-year-old yachtsman, who was feared missing in bad weather during the trip, was escorted in by friend Steve Ransley.

Mr Macklin left in December 2009 to sail around the world solo with nothing more than a child's school atlas.

Jon Kay reports.
