"Once we left land, society as we knew it didn't exist. What did exist was our little ship and family wrapped securely in Neptune's arms."

- April and Bruce Winship

Set Sail and Live Your Dreams is the story of how we were able to embark on our 10-year sabbatical at sea cruising Mexico, Central and South America with our young daughters on our catamaran Chewbacca. It's how we rekindled the cruising dream, prepared our boat and ourselves for life afloat, mastered seamanship, homeschooling and raising a family on 33-feet in both idyllic and dangerous times.

"I shouted out YOU BETTER GET IN HERE AND LOOK AT THIS."

"We had found paradise, but it wasn't a point on a map that had defined our paradise. Paradise was the journey itself."
