OSTAR veteran Mike Richey

JesterOne of my heroes (and I’m sure for many more solo/shorthanded sailors) passed away. Mike Richey made 13 single-handed crossings of the Atlantic in his famous 26ft junk rigged Jester. I met him once at the start of the OSTAR, being busy with greasing buckets full of eggs with vaseline.
