Joe Harris

The Quest to Sail Around the World Solo on a 40ft Monohull

Joe advanced from a local club racer on fully crewed boats to an experienced offshore single and double-handed racer, sailing across the Atlantic four times in addition to numerous passages to Bermuda and the Caribbean and distance racing in Europe. In 2015/16, Joe completed a 152 day solo, unassisted sailing circumnavigation of the world by way of the three Great Capes, including the famed Cape Horn, joining a select group of only 140 sailors that have achieved this feat. Joe will brief us on this trip on his open 40, Gryphon Solo 2, and will discuss the highs and lows of this adventure. http://www.gryphonsolo2.com/page/speaking
