Begin it now....

Whatever you can do or dream you can,begin it.

Boldness has genius,power and magic in it.

Begin it now.


We found this quote on a memorial to a Canadian climber who died on K2.(his favorite quote).Having bought and rebuilt our big wooden schooner we sailed north along the inside passage in preparation for our big Pacific voyage.The enormity of this next step into ocean voyaging was weighing on our minds.When we found these lines on Jedediah Island they were an affirmation of our plans and an encouragement not to give up our dream.We wrote it into the first page of our ships log where we would reread it regularly.
