Stowe sets sail on 1000-day voyage
Reid Stowe and his girlfriend Soanya Ahmad embarked Saturday from NY on a 1000-day voyage around the globe, non-stop, and without port calls. On a previous voyage Stowe set sail on a 200-day voyage with his now ex-wife in 1999. Their 70-foot schooner, ANNE, was built by Reid and his family 30 years ago and named for his mother. If he succeeds he will have trumped Australian Jon Sanders non-stop record of 657 days.
