I do not know Matt, but I admire his sense of adventure. His goal is a solo sail around the Americas, using the journey as a fund raiser for CRAB, a group that provides sailing opportunities on Chesapeake Bay for disabled people. He is 20,000 miles into a 25,000 mile journey. The arctic waters of Northwest Passage, the southern ocean, Cape Horn, single-handed in a 27 foot sailboat that is almost 40 years old. You can read about the trip here in a Washington Post article. The graphic above is a screen shot from the Post article.
I first became aware of Matt when Webb Chiles wrote about the voyage in his journal last Fall. Last night I received an email from my friend Fernando in Brazil telling me about the planned resupply mission out of Recife.
I will make a small donation, that is about the best I can do. Should anyone else be interested, here is a link.
