Finally, in 1992, he completed a solo circumnavigation on his Valiant 47 COMMITMENT, which was more than just a sailing trip, but an educational opportunity for thousands of Chicago kids following his journey. Bill was also the captain of the tallship AMISTAD and is heavily involved with the Mystic Seaport maritime museum.
