Bill Morris

Circumnavigator-author Bill Morris, a native of Los Angeles, is well known for his outspoken commitment to alternative energy on offshore sailing craft. While circling the earth by way of the two canals, singlehanded two-thirds of the way, he relied on renewable energy, manual systems, and a minimum of electronics to keep his Cal 30 sloop Saltaire underway with little dependence on the diesel engine.
