An Evening with Jerome Rand: A Journey Around the World

  • 17161AF5 AB35 4C2B 8C23 C472017E3726 1

The Hoofer Sailing Club and WUD Distinguished Lecture Series present a very special guest speaker - Jerome Rand. 

For Jerome Rand, what began as daydreams and seemingly fanciful imaginings became a real life adventure sailing solo unassisted and nonstop around the world. The Wisconsin Union Directorate (WUD) Distinguished Lecture Series (DLS) Committee and the Hoofer Sailing Club invite the community and visitors to learn about Rand’s adventure from Rand, himself, and to take with them inspiration to achieve their dreams.

Rand will speak Feb. 19 at 7:30 p.m. in the Play Circle Theater at Memorial Union for a lecture called, “Sailing into Oblivion.” He will take guests along his journey as he forewent modern-day conveniences on his 29,805-mile nine-month journey and through lessons learned about endurance, challenging the mind and body, and self-reliance.

If you would like to learn more about Jerome's adventures prior to this event, you can check out his website here
