Ronnie Simpson Racing
Global Solo Challenge
Ronnie Simpson is a 38-year-old professional racing sailor and the skipper of the Open 50 Shipyard Brewing competing in the first-ever Global Solo Challenge, a single-handed non-stop sailing race around the world. As a combat-wounded and medically retired US Marine and Iraq war veteran who has sailed more than 140,000 miles at sea, Ronnie will be sailing to raise money and awareness for US Patriot Sailing, a 501c3 Veterans’ sailing non-profit organization. Ronnie credits sailing with saving his life and believes in the inspirational and therapeutic benefit of finding purpose through sailing.
