Reid Stowe by Beatrice de Gea for the NYTimes

This afternoon, after over three years at sea without coming ashore, Reid Stowe will return to his homeport of New York City. His story in today’s NY Times (A Record-Smashing Sea Journey, and Not for Its Speed – June 17, 2010) has a short (unembeddable :( ) video worth watching. Heck, he went to sea for over 1,100 days, least we can do is watch a 2 1/2 minute video about it.

I’ve met Reid on several occasions and written about this adventure a number of times; he definitely is an interesting guy who accomplished something extraordinary.

Welcome home and congratulations Reid! And please get a paint job underway on Schooner Anne, because she deserves it!
