Lee Winters Chronicle of Cutting Loose and Sailing the world 


Most men lead lives of quiet desperation and go to the grave with the song still in them.

The Boat: Romance

Hunting for the Crusing Boat 

Willkommen. Bienvenue. Welcome. C'mon in. ...
 I am Lee Winters, welcome to my web space.  Over the past 5 years I've realized that no amount of professional success is going to satisfy me.  If I am going to work this hard, it better be for something important to me.  I've determined there must be a better way to live and I am going to find it. 

I have started this page to document the process of cutting loose from the safe and secure and sailing around the world.   As of three years ago I had never set foot on a sail boat.  Needless to say, this will be a long journey and I've set pretty aggressive goals for the trip.   The links to the left will document the steps I take over the next several months/years to prepare.

The ultimate goal is to unplug around Oct. 2008 for an extended cruising "vacation".  By extended we are talking somewhere in the 2 to 5 year range.  The initial plan is to sail around the globe with a lot of coastal cruising  of the Americas to start.   This should provide the skills necessary to venture off on the longer ocean passages. 

Anyways, thanks for looking on and please don't hesitate to contact me.  This should be fun.
