Ask Katy

Dear Katy, this is a question for Simon. My cousin is Yachting champion Laurie Smith, who was involved with the Drum project with Simon in the mid-eighties. I was wondering if Simon could confirm to what degree was his involvement and for how long. Cheers and Happy new Year

"Dear Mike, If he's your cousin how come you can't spell his christian name properly? What I mean is - it's Lawrie, not Laurie Smith. He sailed the first two legs of the W.R.T.W.R. on Drum and did very nicely too."
