In this episode of Point of SAIL, Principal Editor Adam Cort talks with solo-sailor Ryan Finn, a veteran bluewater passagemaker looking to re-create the famed New York-to-San Francisco clipper aboard the 36ft proa, Jzerro. Although Finn was forced to abandon his first attempt as a result of damage to the boat’s hull, he is currently making repairs in anticipation of another attempt toward the end of 2021. For more on the voyage, which will also be the subject of a documentary produced by Canada’s Sailor Productions, visit Ryan’s 2Oceans1Rock Facebook page. Finn has also started a GoFundMe campaign to help finance the effort.
