Capt. Alex Borton grew up with an old wooden sailfish. As an ASA certified sailing instructor he taught on dinghies and keelboats, and has volunteered on tall ships. As as life-long adventurer he has journeyed for multiple weeks in small engineless craft in Washington, Baja and Patagonia. In the spring of 2021 Alex talked his Dad into accompanying him and Wayward Sun on the 1400 mile first ever 100% solar cruise through the Inside Passage from Bellingham to Glacier Bay.
