Matt Rutherford's Epic Journey
I doubt many people thought this tiny boat would make it from Annapolis to Bermuda, let alone around the Americas. But Matt certainly has everyone believing now. His story was recently featured in the Washington Post and rumor has it that the Navy band will greet him upon his return.

Hi, this is Matt's Mom. I enjoyed the layouts you posted of Matt's boat. Thank you! I live in Austin, Texas; are the Annapolis folks really thinking about greeting Matt with the Navy band?
Hi Matt's Mom! You're very welcome, I think what he is doing is inspiring and there is absolutely no way I could even imagine doing it myself.
My name is Sarah and I handle the marketing, which includes this blog, for FHY in Annapolis.
However, I grew up in Austin, Texas and my family still lives there!
Unfortunately, the Navy Band greeting is only rumor at this point, but I was hoping that puting it on the web might encourage the idea!
