Round The World
In A "DUCK"
! ASHBURY PARK (New Jer I sey), Joly 4-Major Ben Carlin, of Perth, and his American wife, Eleanor, sailed yesterday in their 18 ft long amphibian on a 40-mile hop to New York, where they will make final preparations for an- other attempt at the -Atlantic crossing.
The Carlins sailed from New York on June 16 for the Azores
on' the first leg of their proposed round the world trip and con- siderable anxiety was felt for then safety when no radio messages were received from them. They arrived unexpectedly at Shark River Inlet on June 21 and ex- plained that they had been forced back because the craft would not steer at sea unless the wheel was constantly manned.
The steering gear has now been adjusted- and the Carlins hope to leave New York . ior the -Azores again* on July 8.
