Letter sent to Sir Chay Blyth from our Chairman to celebrate his 50th Anniversary of his non-stop west about circumnavigation.
There is also a link at the bottom of the page of about the day
Dear Sir Chay,
I would like to send you our best wishes and congratulations on behalf of the International Association of Cape Horners (IACH) Membership.
The celebration on the Hamble to celebrate the 50th anniversary of your pioneering solo non-stop west-about circumnavigation back in 1971 aboard the 59ft ketch British Steel is not only apt but helps to highlight the enormous number of your sailing achievements, your contribution to the sailing fraternity and of course the enormous and life changing opportunities you gave so many people on The Global Challenge.
We have published the details of the programme for this very special day on our Cape Horn website.
Have a wonderful day.
