From the small creek behind his best friends house as a kid, to the Cascades, to the mountains of Patagonia, to the summit of Denali, as an avid Alpinist, Josh has spent the last 12 years exploring the mountains and pursuing adventures across 3 continents.

After all of those years spent freezing my ass off in a cramped, smelly tent I decided that I would rather be cold and wet in a cramped smelly boat. So I bought myself a small sailboat and learned how to sail it. Now I enjoy sailing my C&C 24 around Puget Sound about 1000nm each year. I have always dreamed of circumnavigating and when I heard about the Mini Globe Race it seemed like the perfect opportunity for an epic adventure.
