ON THE HORIZON
We love the serenity and peace that the cruising life presents. New experiences and adventures are our greatest passions. We intend to share our moments of discovery and intrigue as we encounter them together.
Some of the most beautiful scenery comes from old architecture. The Scottish highlands are rich in history, passion, love for life, and culture. We have been to Scotland several times and it continues to be a source of wonder and amazement about the rich greenness of the country side.

Our family enjoys exploring new places, experiencing and learning about them, as well as seeking out new adventures. If you have similar tendencies please drop us a note and let's chat about it.
Once we’d decided to learn about sailing, it was obvious that we needed to find a conference, along with other ways of immersing ourselves in the information of the sport and cruising lifestyle. We were already taking sailing lessons and would sail in the open water in August, so a boat show or cruising conference was just what we needed to bridge the gap.
It started with a casual conversation about retirement, something that’s been on our minds a lot more recently, and evolved into an exercise of financial what-if models to determine our shorter term options. We had been talking about it for only two to three days before James created the Sailing Adventure folder on our shared drive.
With that minimal structure in place, I proceeded to use my project management and OCD strengths to initiate several other lists, to figure out exactly what we need to learn, the path to living on a boat, whether we want to, the timing of big events, the cost of this idea, the definition of the idea for each of the people involved, and what we need to know to get there.
Sailing enthusiasts may be laughing at my word choice of “exactly”, since with sailing as well as with other adventures, plans can’t be followed exactly. You set a course and have contingency plans, and make sure you know enough to be able to react appropriately and safely when things don’t go as expected (when, not if).
As we refine the goals, the path, and the steps that will guide this journey, we will share a glimpse of the effort, the ah-ha moments, and tools that help us along the way. And we’ll provide this information through three different lenses, those of the man with the sailing dream, the woman with the adventurous spirit, and the easy-going boy who can sink his teeth into any idea that has the potential to be an epic adventure.
Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover. - Sarah Frances Brown
I have adventured in many places over the years. While it is true that not of one of them has been like another, there have been a few I have been incredibly fond of and have even visited several times. Hawaii is certainly one of those places, as the warm tropical climate is not only pleasing to the heart and tends to warm my soul, but I find it serene and relaxing. It’s one of the few places on Earth where I have thoroughly enjoyed sitting under a shade tree with the cool ocean breeze wafting by, watching worries exfoliate from me like a long forgotten second skin as I emerge newly refreshed.
Hello from the Landers Family! We enjoy exploring diverse and culturally rich places, experiencing and learning about them. We plan to share these experiences with you through photographs, videos, and stories from our travels. There's a new adventure taking shape for us in the near future- soon we hope to experience smooth sailing to distant horizons.
