|Bob Manry and Tinkerbelle
Robert Manry was working as a copy editor at the Cleveland Plain Dealer when, on June 1, 1965, he sailed from Falmouth, Massachusetts, aboard the Tinkerbelle, a 13.5-foot sailboat. When he reached Falmouth, Cornwall, England, on August 17, he set a record for sailing the shortest boat non-stop across the Atlantic. The 78-day voyage was covered by news outlets from around the world, including the Plain Dealer, for which he continued to work after his accomplishment.
