When 1994 Whitbread Race winner Ross Field refitted his 20-year-old, aluminium yacht Rosemary for high latitude cruising, he applied Kiwi DIY, latest technology and 35 years of ocean racing experience. Rebecca Hayter followed his refit in detail. Then she signed on as crew for one of the world's most dangerous oceans.
