BIOGRAPHY:

Bruce Schwab grew up on the water, literally. He spent many of his childhood years in Seattle living on a boat with his father. He attended the University of Washington and worked in the sailing industry. Tired of the 9-5, he started fundraising to build a boat so that he could attempt to complete the Vendee Globe Race, an around-the-world solo sailing race. He became the first American to do so in 2005.
