Do You Have a Dream??



My dream is getting closer.  For over 20 years I have dreamed of sailing this watery planet.  In a little more than 24 months, we will be departing on a trip of a lifetime.  Sailing to Australia from San Francisco (about 10k miles).  I plan to purchase the boat in 2017 or early 2018 with my friends Tex and Mike.  We will depart in September 2018.  The voyage will take one year.  My wife is not going but has given me the opportunity to make this journey.  She plans to meet me in some of the best spots.  I have been preparing for this epic adventure by sailing the bay for the last 30 years, offshore cruising in Mexico (5 Haha's) and many charters in the Caribbean and Mexico.  I have more Baja Haha's coming up plus another Caribbean bareboat charter. 

This dream has brought so much to my life.  The people I have met in the pursuit of this dream.  The boat that I have owned and shared with my boat partners for the last 16 years.  The Addiction has brought so much joy into my life.  The wonder of being on the water for those years in many different points on the planet.  Keeping in shape with daily workout on the land and in the pool.  I love it!

Now it's your turn!  What are going to do with this gift of life you have been given?  If I can get one person to imagine and pursue their dream, I have succeeded.  Dream big and dream often.  I hope your dream comes true, but it is entirely up to you. 

I hope you enjoyed the video.  You can find more from this gent if you go straight to Youtube.
