Bill Nance is only the 2nd known person to ever sail alone around the world via the three great capes (1962-1965) from west to east. The book “The Circumnavigators” says he was “…one of the boldest and most competent, but least-known circumnavigators, on the tiny 25-foot Cardinal Vertue…”. In this conversation we mostly talk about that voyage, the adventures he had, and the people he met, but we also cover how he ended up in Port Townsend, and a little about what he has done since arriving in 1979.
