The 55-metre ship, the first tall ship to have been built to enable physically-disabled and able-bodied people to sail side-by-side, will visit more than 30 countries on all seven continents and cross the equator four times during the trip.

Just spoken to colleagues in Cardiff about the hit-and-runs. The identity of the driver is still not known and motive is a total mystery.
CARDIFF HIT AND RUNS LATEST FROM PRESS ASSOCIATION: The brother of a woman killed in the Cardiff hit-and-run rampage today paid tribute to her as a heroine who sacrificed her own life to save her children.
Karina Menzies, 32, was walking outside the fire station on Cowbridge Road West with her children when a white van - which injured more than a dozen others in a 30-minute terror spree - careered towards them.
Ms Menzies bravely threw her children out of the way, her brother Craig Menzies said today.
He told Radio 5 Live the driver targeted his family.
“He went through the traffic, aimed for them and then just hit them head on,” Mr Menzies said.
“She just screamed and threw them out of the way as much as she could.
“He still clipped them but she took it head-on. She saved their lives.”
He told the programme it was “a waste of a life”, adding: “She was the world to me.
“She was my best friend. She was a lively, bubbly person.
“There’s just so many good things you could say about her. We’ll all be lost without her.”

POLITICS: Vale of Clwyd MP Chris Ruane has spoken to the Daily Post to stress he followed all the rules laid down by the Parliamentary expenses watchdog – and all his claims have been approved by it.
His statement came after he was named on Friday as one of 27 who claim rent in London while letting out another property in the capital.
His entry in the register of Members' financial interests says: "Flat in London, from which rental income is received."
Separate information published by the Independent Parliamentary Standards Authority (IPSA) for the last financial year shows monthly payments of £1,906.66 listed under "accommodation rent".
Mr Ruane was unavoidably unable to comment on Friday, but has told the Daily Post now: “I have followed the new IPSA rules to the letter and all claims have been approved by IPSA.”
It is understood he had to move out of his London flat and rent it out when IPSA changed the rules three years, because of the details of the mortgage.
IPSA insisted MPs letting out properties was “an issue of their own private financial affairs over which we rightly have no authority.
