In all honesty, this is the story of a weekend sailor who bought a boat and convinced his nephew to come on what is sure to be an epic adventure.
Why memorialize this adventure? Well, I am sure that Paul Tuennerman isn't alone; he spent most of his adult life chasing airplanes and placing his dreams on hold in pursuit of his career. Yet, while his passion for his work made all this possible, he never lost the perspective that there was more to life and wanted to face the ultimate challenge.
Looking back on all he had accomplished over the years in the restaurant industry, Paul decided it was time to pursue his dreams of cruising the islands, and in 2016 he left the workforce to see if he had what it takes to sail the oceans.
Paul's message is simple to anyone who ever had big dreams as a child; there are no "do-overs" in life, and there's no time like the present. So, in October 2021, Paul and Paolo set off to test themselves mentally, physically, and spiritually not just to chase their dreams but to prove to others with similar passions that it's possible; you just have to want it bad enough.
“Don’t just sit and wait for the magic to happen…the magic that turns dreams into reality is you…live your life in a way that will bring that dream along, that goal, to life. The magic is you.” - Dr. Steve Maraboli
