It's a life many of us dream about and David Welsford has made it happen. Exploring the ocean on a sailboat away from the daily grind and hustle is appealing for so many reasons. Welsford restored a Herreshoff 28 (H -28) in his native Newfoundland and sailed it to the Caribbean, which is no small feat in a twenty eight foot boat.
Along the way he's been blogging at TwentyEightFeet.com and I've followed his adventures with some jealously but with more amazement. What Welsford learns about self-reliance is really admirable. I urge you to watch the short documentary above about his trip but also check out his site where there is so much more great content.
