Navigating by Nature: The Voyage of the Globe Star

Ninety-six year old Rowan Geography professor emeritus returns to campus to share his story of sailing around the world using only the stars and his knowledge of geography. Dr. Marvin Creamer is the only human to ever circumnavigate the globe on a sailboat using NO navigational instruments. After 510 days of raging seas and unrelenting obstacles, Dr. Creamer returned to the safe harbors of New Jersey.

Please join us in welcoming Dr. Creamer – still an active sailor at 96 – as he brings his epic voyage full circle. Please take part in the conversation on Thursday, September 20th @ Rowan Hall Auditorium as he charts the course of his historic journey and the amazing events that occurred on this 30th year anniversary of his voyage.
