I have been following Guy Waites since he crossed the Atlantic in his Contessa 26 Red Admiral. A very admirable feat in a 26ft boat. Recently, he made the same crossing from England to Rhode Island (New York) in a 21ft Corribee named Betsy. During his crossing he capsized and was upside down for the better part of a minute. As a part time couch sailor I think it is important to acknowledge people like Guy and boats like Betsy. The world is flooded with amateur sailors on massive luxury yachts making their way around the world, whilst bombarding the internet with their day to day lives, and the true sailors are rarely noticed.
