Captain Mike has been sailing for over 50 years, starting with the family
Rebel and Pearson Triton. His favorite sailing moment is watching dawn reveal
a circle of clear horizon. He stopped cutting his hair when he retired his
business suit a couple of years ago. The suit was for working as an attorney
at the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.
Mate Rana told Mike on the night they met that she had always wanted to sail
around the world. That was the night this adventure began. Rana is a film
maker who has filmed in Africa, South America, Europe, Indonesia, Central
America, Asia and North America. She is documenting the voyage and looking
for interesting ethnographic tales to tell.
