American Honda is now a contributing sponsor of Red Dot On the Ocean,
the Matt Rutherford Story.
In April of 2012, Matt Rutherford set a world record for his 27,000 mile solo, non-stop 309 day circumnavigation of the America’s, through the Northwest Passage and around Cape Horn, aboard St. Brendan, a 27 foot Albin Vega sailboat.
A public high school drop-out, Matt eventually graduated from Eagle Rock School, an innovative, tuition free, private residential high school wholly funded by American Honda. The Eagle Rock experience played a critical role in turning around Matt’s life, instilling in him a passion for nautical history and the environment, and an eagerness to help others through volunteering.
Opened in 1993, Eagle Rock School and its Professional Development Center (PDC) has shared its life changing educational methods with more than 10,000 educators from across the United States.
