Dustin Celebrating His Life in Bazaruto

Dustin Reynolds is on-track to become the first double amputee to circumnavigate the globe under sail solo. This picture was taken on the 10th anniversary of the accident with took his left arm and lower left leg. On that day Dustin chose to live, starting a journey that has taken him across two oceans from Hawaii to South Africa. When he set out, he didn’t know how to sail, didn’t have any money, and didn’t have a left arm or left leg below the knee. But he had a $12,000 ‘seen better days’ sailboat and a dream to circumnavigate the world; a dream that carried him to Bazaruto, Mozambique for this celebration.
