Guy Waites just completed his transatlantic crossing on a Corribee 21. From his report has been a long and difficult passage. Great little boat with a superb skipper. Bravo!

I've been in contact via Facebook. He is still in Newport, I hope for a detailed report of the trip as soon as he has the chance to wit down and write it!

The Delorme messages certainly sound like an "interesting" crossing, with gales, a capsize and running out of water. Sadly they don't seem to go back very far, and the track indicates more interesting events earlier in the trip. Would love to hear a report, although he's probably still recovering :)
