Jerome and the Mighty Sparrow
Jerome Rand and his Mighty Sparrow are nearing the end of their non-stop solo circumnavigation. They sailed out of Gloucester Harbor on October 3rd. On June 13th they sailed through the North Sound of Virgin Gorda in BVI. We expect to have him touch ground for the first time in about ten months at our own Harriet Webster Pier at the end of June!
Watch here for updates on his arrival.
