As a father of a child afflicted with autism and as a avid supporter of boatbuilding and boat adventures I was in love with news in Chesapeake Light Craft’s e-newsletter today of a great new voyage. Neil Calore is a Philadelphia firefighter who built a CLC Northeaster Dory as part of a CLC class last year. He is planning to row and sail it from here in Washington, DC to New York City, a distance of 425 miles. His effort will be a fundraiser for Autism Speaks, a leading autism research and advocacy organization. I don’t know Neil, but I love everything about this project and I hope you will join me in supporting this voyage.
Update: Neil has a blog on the voyage we need to follow.
