Matt Rutherford Returns to Annapolis!

Congrats!  Matt Rutherford has returned to Annapolis after sailing around North and South America in support of CRAB (Chesapeake Regional Accesible Boating). He sailed solo, non-stop through the infamous Northwest Passage and the even more infamous Cape Horn!

Matt sailed the journey in an Albin Vega (our type of boat).  Before he left last year, Grant met him and they discussed Albin Vega weaknesses.

My parents attended his homecoming, telling us:

We saw Matt’s homecoming at the town dock.  He did a sail-by and then took down sails and was tug-boated in by an inflatable.  Greeting him were the governor and his wife, the mayor, other politicians, Gary Jobson, the CRAB folks, the head of the Vega association, and the head of the OCC.
