Join the Friends of the Hamilton-Wenham Public Library for an evening with Rich Wilson, ninth placed finisher in the last edition of the Vendée Globe.


His 121 days passage sailing solo round the world is an outstanding human adventure story featured in a race which was richly endowed with an outstanding cast of characters, taking on the toughest solo sailing challenge there is.


The primary purpose of his voyage was K-12 education.  Founder of sitesALIVE!, Wilson connected his voyage to 250,000 students and 7 million readers by publication of a 15 part series (written aboard ship) in 50 U.S. newspapers in 12 states and by www.sitesalive.com.  Schools in 15 foreign countries participated online.


This event is FREE and open to the public.  Refreshments will be served at 6:30 p.m. followed by brief announcements from the Friends at 7 p.m.  Rich Wilson's discussion will begin at 7:30 p.m.
