world record sail

Yesterday Jan 3 we had the good fortune to witness Mike Purham's (spelling may not be correct) finish to his world record sail here in English Harbor Antigua. Mike made it into the Guiness book of world records for the youngest person to sail single handed across the Atlantic. Mike is 14 with a big smile. The trip started in Gilbrater and took 47 days. Mike sailed a 28' Tide 28 built by his family in England. The boat seems to be very narrow on the beam but stable. Mike was followed very closely by his father in and identical boat. I talked with Mike today and he tells me that the boats are for sale and they will be returning home to England next Tuesday.
