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.
- Henry David Thoreau
|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.
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.
Of the exploring instinct in man, John Anderson refers in a seminal book by the same title to what he calls the Ulysses Factor and says that it: «…is a complex of impulses in an individual prompting him to seek firsthand physical experience of something hitherto unknown (to him) thathas aroused his curiosity. It must include the impulse to learn firsthand through physical action: what, is immaterial; it may be to discover what lies beyond a range of hills, to see new stars bytraveling to some new part of the earth’s surface to observe the heavens, to find the source of ariver, to discover if there is a far side to an apparent limitless ocean. This is the main force - thephysical satisfaction of man’s curiosity. »
