The motivation behind Matt's journey is to show people, particularly those with disabilities, that there are no limits to what can be accomplished in life; and to raise money for Chesapeake Region Accessible Boating (CRAB), a nonprofit sailing program for people with disabilities based in Annapolis, Maryland.
Matt is sailing aboard a 27 ft. Albin-Vega named St. Brendan. He's currently about halfway between Bermuda and North Carolina battling a northerly gale. His motor is dead and he can no longer charge his batteries because his wind generator and solar panels have stopped working. He's nearly home, but his homecoming is entirely dependent on the weather. The current plan, according to his website Solo Around the Americas is to arrive in Annapolis on Saturday, April 21st.
