A Satisfying Sail Around The World (Tue. 28 May, 2019 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm)

Author and skipper Zeke Holland will talk about his book, A Satisfying Sail Around the World, and share remarkable tales and photos of his circumnavigation aboard the “No Regrets.” This is a free event. Books will be available for purchase. 

The goal of his two and a half year voyage was not to break speed records or be the youngest circumnavigator.  Rather, it was to meet the routine challenges of the sea, weather, breakdowns, and crew living in a confined space in stressful conditions. To savor the joys of the stars, the dolphins at the bows, the sensation of being moved by the wind, the islands appearing over the horizon, a welcome meal after a trying day. The author brings you aboard, crossing oceans, experiencing remote and beautiful parts of the world, wrestling with the concepts of climate change and climate justice, and stitching together an ever-changing crew.
