Eric set sail today just before noon on his around the world solo-circumnavigation. The setting could not have been more beautiful as the sky was a brilliant blue, the sun radiantly beamed and the wind held as he departed slip 82 to embark upon his incredible journey. After so much preparation and organization, the time had come, and those who watched could not have been more proud or excited for him. He is an inspiration and a flesh and blood reminder that dreams are possible...and really do come true. Fair winds and following seas.
