OHYC Member Circumnavigating the Globe in a SJ24

From club member John C - a local sailor from Oak Harbor is attempting a circumnavigation of the globe on a San Juan 24. He would be the first person to ever do so in an SJ24. To boot, he's doing the trip non-stop and solo. Boats from this era are known for broaching downwind. It will be interesting for him in some wind.

He's set up a SPOT so you can follow his progress:

An interesting story to watch.
