At https://havewindwilltravel.com, we're creating cruisers, one dreamer at a time by sharing our story through books, blogs and videos, touring boats and giving away "Gifts of Cruising" (currently a 6-day bareboat charter course) to help people just like you who have the dream to cruise.

It always happens. Once you haul out for one thing (rotten stringer repair), you find a gazillion others. Watch as we re-rig from rod to wire, install a hydraulic auto-pilot, re-seam the keel and more to ready our boat for blue waters!
Right when we make plans to sail south, we face a very big setback in the form of rotten stringers under the mast. But, we won't be deterred! Watch as we make plans to pull the mast and dig out the mulch that once held up our rig.
Get a tour of our beautiful Niagara 35 which hales from Pensacola, experience kite-surfing first-hand on some of Florida's finest sugar-white beaches and learn how to hang aerial silks on the boat or the nearest tree!
I'm using Patreon to give back! So many fellow cruisers helped me along the way by sharing information, tools and resources, that I was inspired to use my crowd-funding to give the "Gift of Cruising" (sailing lessons, cruising consultant services, tickets and travel to a sailboat show, you name it!) at every new benchmark to one of my Patrons.
