Remembering Bill Dunlop-S/V Winds Will

As I was thinking about what type of boat would be too small to sail the world in I recalled a childhood memory of the Winds Will on the local news. Big doings for small town Maine.

He crossed the Atlantic in a 9' sailboat.

I went looking for information and found out the sailor in question was Bill Dunlop. His family has a small blurb on their farms homepage and I found two news articles. It appears he does not have a wiki page yet.

Here is a link.

Re: Remembering Bill Dunlop-S/V Winds Will

I knew Serge Testa who at the time was the manager of my Yacht Club.

Serge did a 27,000 mile circumnavigation beginning and finishing in Brisbane. The sailboat was 11' 10" long.

I think he is still listed in the Guinness Book of World Records for the smallest sailboat to complete a circumnavigation..

Here is Serge's web site
