Solo Circumnavigator Joe Harris speaks at Pelagic Sailing Club August 25
Joe Harris completed his solo circumnavigation in Gryphon Solo 2 a 40’ monohull sailboat in May. Joe is a third generation offshore racing sailor who grew up sailing on Long Island Sound [NOAA chart 12354] and now lives on the North Shore of Boston with his wife and 3 children. We will hear about his campaign to buy a third-generation boat and outfit her to handle the challenges of sailing around the world alone. Those of us who follow big sailing events may have seen Joe in the Block Island Race Week [Results], Marblehead to Halifax Race [Results] or the Bermuda race.
