Episode Summary

Michael tries to buy time and drives across Arabia in 40 hours, only to find in Dubai his toughest challenge. He proposes to sail to Bombay on a primitive, sail-assisted vessel without radio, navigation aids, life belts or electricity, with a crew of Gujarati mariners who barely speak English. There's no accommodation either, and the circumnavigators must sleep on sacks of cargo on the deck.moreless
