Farewell to Dodge Morgan
Dodge Morgan, who was the first American to circumnavigate non-stop, died last week at 78. He completed his route in 1986 in only 150 days. He produced a book, The Voyage of American Promise, and a video about his lonely months at sea aboard American Promise. Both of them are worth a look.
There is a lot more detail at the Washington Post, and the New York Times.
