John Silverwood, inset, performed sea trials on his cutter Espiritu Santo before his 2,300-mile sail from San Diego to Hawaii. The solo trek is a test of redemption, he said, after a disastrous family sail in 2005 in French Polynesia that took his left leg. Pictured behind is the family’s catamaran Emerald Jane breaking apart on a reef.
