Captain Bill Pinkney
We all know how difficult the teenage years are for many kids. Bill describes his, but he prevailed. If reading Sailing Commitment Around the World inspires a few kids to overcome obstacles and make something BIG of their lives, it will make Bill a happy man. I’m tremendously proud and in awe of what he has accomplished.
