WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — Greg Frucci has decided to throw in the towel and come home. The sailor had hoped to sail from Wrightsville Beach to Portugal, but hit heavy storms on the way which damaged his boat and scared him to death. He stopped in Bermuda last week for repairs, but it looks like that’s as far as he’ll make it on this leg of adventure.
In an e-mail sent to one of our interns today he writes, “Hey Maria, I just booked a flight for tomorrow….it’s been quite a journey thus far…a positive one with many lessons learned…and this is just a moment in time which will continue…for me, this is “Changing Course:The Bermuda Chronicles”…the journey will not end here. Peace to you, Greg”
Frucci says his boat will stay in Bermuda until November.
