Matthew Wootton

 Matthew Wootton was 2 and half years into a planned three year odyssey by boat around the world when he found the Nina.  Most people buy their own boats to do a circumnavigation.  In Matthew's sense of conservation and practical living, Matthew circumnavigated on everyone Else's boat, as a hitch-hiker of sorts.

One newspaper claims Matthew was terrified of drowning in the ocean.  In reality, Matthew, had nightmares about dying in a tsunami which he presumes crashes against the shore.  Yet, as he stood watch on a freighter during one of his legs, Matthew speaks about his fear of being tossed overboard and lost in the vast ocean.

"Why then do I travel by freighter ship, why then do I want to sail across the ocean in a tiny sail boat? Funnily, the tsunami dream never occurs at sea. It’s always the shore that is inundated. With that wall of approaching death. But the sea still scares me. As well it should. It is the only sensible reaction to be cautious of such a beast. I keep on wishing to anthropomorphise (sic) it. Should I?"

Wootton is troubled by an unfriendly world and encourages all people to be a little friendlier.  In his face book post, "Water Water Everywhere" he speaks about the people who don't have access to fresh water.

"Worldwide 2.5 billion people on our Earth live without proper drinking water or sanitation, and this kills almost 2,000 children a day, a total of 2 million people every year." Wootton writes.
