Re: Who's your favorite Celebrity Sailor

Loyke Peyron I think I spelled it right. He won the Rue De Rum solo in a 135 Tri
In seven days. He's the best

Re: Who's your favorite Celebrity Sailor

I'm surprised no one has mentioned JFK.

Re: Who's your favorite Celebrity Sailor

James Arness hasn't been mentioned yet. He had a number of Kettenburgs named Sea Smoke.

Re: Who's your favorite Celebrity Sailor

Krystyna Chojnowska-Liskiewicz, from Poland, who was the first female to circumnavigate the world and also Naomi James, from England, who was first to
do it racing solo non stop.
These women, tell your wives, broke the glass ceiling in offshore sailing.
Since them a few young teenage girls have repeated their achievements.

Re: Who's your favorite Celebrity Sailor

Stephen Stills
(Bandmate w/ David Crosby. Wrote "Southern Cross")

Johnny Carson, who spent much of his last years after retirement living on his boat.

Surprised no one has mentioned Ted Turner, who won the America's Cup. But he wouldn't be one of my favorites either.

Bob Seger has/had a Catalina 320, I was watching an interview with him on CBS Sunday Morning and he was on his boat.

Hal Holbrook was a actor who sailed a lot and did the transpac a few times.

I didn't know that, I had to check it out. Read a few pages on Google, and I'm hooked, thanks! BTW, Hal turned 91 two days ago.

I would say Holbrook definitely has celeb status, he was on Broadway a lot more than movies and TV. He played Mark Twain longer than Sam Clemens did!
