Outside Edge (20/06/10)

Congratulations to the four-man crew who have retraced Captain Bligh's 4,400-mile escape from the mutiny on the Bounty in a replica 25ft open boat, sailing for 48 days from Tonga to West Timor. They had no compasses or charts – or toilet paper – and lived off fish and rainwater. But they have got nothing on Reid Stowe, who arrived in New York in his homemade 70ft schooner after 1,152 days at sea, the longest-ever continuous sea voyage. He never set foot on land, also living off fish and rain. Reid, 58, has now met his two-year-old son Darshen for the first time. His partner Soanya Ahmad left after 300 days because of seasickness but she turned out to be pregnant. There was a big swell.

Casillas wrong to attack keepers, insists Banks

Gordon Banks has hit back at Iker Casillas' "disrespectful" claim that England's goalkeepers are not up to scratch. The Spain No 1 said earlier this week that David James, Rob Green and Joe Hart lacked the big-match pedigree to cut it at the World Cup.

Diary: School's out for Eugenie

Charles Saatchi's Newspeak exhibition opened at the collector's London gallery yesterday, and among the works on show is Eugenie Scrase's "Trunkated", a found section of fencing topped with a fallen chunk of tree. Viewers of BBC2's School of Saatchi will recall Scrase (and her piece) as the winner of that TV reality contest. The works she created for broadcast also included a lamp-pull draped over a radiator, and a whistle hanging from a door handle. "Actually," she corrects me, "it was a handlebar for handicapped people getting out of the bath." And what has the 20-year-old, currently completing her second year at the Slade art school, been up to since the show was broadcast? Working with doorhandles, as it happens: "I've been tampering with and perverting their intended role," she says. "I'm also planning a project in Frankfurt to do with bollards." For now, however, Scrase plans to spend her summer waitressing at a caff in Brixton. The life of an artist.

Schwarzer speaks out about World Cup ball
