Mike and Linda dreamed of retiring and sailing away to explore exotic places around the world.  In January 2005, at age 57, they were able to make the dream a reality.  They retired, sold their house and furniture, bought a Hylas 49 sloop, and started living the dream.

This website was created to tell their story, share their sailing experiences and photos, and keep friends and family up to date on where they are so they can come visit!
