SIR CHARLES BLYTH CBE. Scottish yachtsman and rower known as Chay Blyth. In 1966, whilst in the Army, he (together with Captain John Ridgway) rowed across the North Atlantic in a 20ft open dory called English Rose III. After successfully completing this in 92 days, he was awarded the British Empire Medal (BEM). Later in 1971, he became the first person to sail single-handed non-stop westwards around the world in 292 days onboard a 59-foot boat named British Steel.
