Project history:

Historical background or context of the e story Who, what, where, when, how, why?

It began in the year 1986 when David Taylor, having read a book about the first man to solo circumnavigate the globe, became interested in sailing and began to dream of his own adventure.  Fast forward 28 years to the beginning of the plan in earnest.  After recruiting his younger brother, Stephen Taylor, into the fold, the pair conceived of and began planning The Gemini Project.  As the project matured, the pair refined the idea into three stages, thus breaking the whole plan down into more manageable pieces.
