Dodge Morgan Tribute to Be Held in Portland, Maine

This year marks the 25th anniversary of Dodge Morgan’s solo, nonstop circumnavigation voyage. Morgan was not only the first American to accomplish the feat, he did it in 142 days less than the previous record time.

Morgan passed away in 2010, and the Maine Maritime Museum will pay tribute to the man and his accomplishments in a special event on Sunday, August 21, beginning at 4:00 p.m. at The Portland Company on Fore Street in Portland.

The documentary of Morgan’s voyage, Around Alone, will be shown; voyage team members and others will reflect both on Morgan’s feat and the man; and his vessel, American Promise, will be dockside for touring.
