In 1965, Robert Manry was a typical middle-aged suburbanite in Cleveland. However, his colleagues at The Plain Dealer newspaper were shocked to learn he had just set sail on a solo voyage across the Atlantic in his 13.5-ft. sloop, Tinkerbelle. By the time his 78-day odyssey ended in England, Manry was the target of a wild journalistic arms race, the guest of honor to a welcoming committee of 20,000 Britons, and a hero to his countrymen—and to dreamers everywhere.
