Teacher to give presentation on epic rowing journey to HawaiiDecember 5th, 2012 by Tad Sooter
Former Bainbridge High School teacher Rory Wilson will share reflections and photos from his rowing odyssey to Hawaii next week.
The presentation is scheduled for 7 p.m. Dec. 11 at the Bainbridge High School commons. The event is free, and donations will be accepted for the Bainbridge Schools Foundation.
Wilson made the 44-day journey from San Diego to Honolulu earlier this fall in a slender homemade craft powered by oars and kites. He called the vessel “KROS,” short for kites, rowing ocean, solar. Wilson’s math students at Bainbridge High helped him prepare for the journey.
You can get a taste of Wilson’s adventure in the video below, which shows KROS dancing through waves under kite power. Wilson has posted many more amazing images on the KROS page on Facebook.
