Bruce and April Winship were young and newly married when they decided to go looking for a little adventure. With little to no experience they hopped on a sailboat bound for Tahiti, and after two years of crewing on different sailboats throughout the South Pacific, Central and South America, they returned home with a burning passion to rediscover paradise on their own boat... this time as a family. "Set Sail and Live Your Dreams" is the story of how Bruce and April overcame adversity, financial hurdles, and a steep learning curve to create the adventure of a lifetime for themselves and their two young daughters. Their voyage of discovery exposes the hardships of almost losing their boat on a reef, the challenges of homeschooling, to the joyous moments spent anchored at uninhabited islands for months at a time. We hope "Set Sail and Live Your Dreams" will inspire you to launch an adventure of your own, whether big or small, by land or sea... to drift off the beaten path, even for just a little while.

Author Biography

A native Californian, April Winship spent her childhood in New South Wales, Australia and has had a spirit for travel and adventure ever since. Throughout their cruising years, she wrote articles featured in local sailing magazines highlighting the unique challenges and rewards of cruising with their 2 young children on a small sailboat. Now an empty nester her bucket list includes a cross country trip in their travel trailer, exploring The Great Loop waterway in the U.S. in a future trawler and writing another book about their escapades as sailboat crew hitchhiking their way across the South Pacific. After working on several aerospace projects including the Space Shuttle Launch Complex and the Titan 3B Missile Program, Bruce took a 2-year hiatus from his work as an engineer and began hitching rides on several sailboats across the Pacific and back with his wife April. The sailing bug took hold, and even after returning to his engineering career, Bruce and April began planning an even more ambitious adventure. Their dream of purchasing their own 33-foot catamaran sailboat and traveling throughout Central and South America with their 2 young daughters was the culmination of 10 years of planning, and preparation.
