1000 days at sea: Reid Stowe set to return in triumph to New York

Reid Stowe aboard Anne
Reid Stowe is set to return to New York Thursday June 17 after three years at sea without making landfall.  The past two years he has been single-handed after his pregnant crew Soanya left near Perth.  His first day on terra firma will also be his first look at the son born to him and Soanya.

Reid's record, like others. is an inexplicable quest - though his ramblings posted on the internet have been a mighty effort to say why.  The New Yorker also took a stab at it HERE.

That he is an awesome seaman there is no doubt.  That he built the ship that carried him also impressive.

His story of the voyage of the schooner Anne is HERE.

Issuma: bound for Nova Scotia

Richard Hudson and crew have passed through the Cape Cod Canal and are headed for Nova Scotia, and points north.

Their position report is here
