The culmination of a childhood dream, Captain Paul, a U.S.C.G. Licensed Captain, sets sail from Pass Christian, Mississippi, on a 5,000 nautical mile adventure with his godson Paolo. Prior to this, Paolo, a recent La Salle University graduate, has never set foot onboard a sailboat. Together, these two expect to test themselves mentally, physically, and spiritually as one closes a chapter and the other uncovers the possibilities that lay ahead.
Captain Paul and Paolo will begin their adventure in the Bahamas, sailing south to the Turks and Caicos, British and U.S. Virgin Islands before making their way into the Caribbean Sea, visiting many of the Windward and Leeward Islands.
Captain Paul and Paolo have spent the better part of the last six months preparing the S/V Bad Captain, a 2007 Hylas 46, for their voyage. Finally, with meal preparation complete and the boat prepared, they will set off from Pass Christian, Mississippi, honing their navigation and weather-forecasting skills in search of adventure this October.
