    Safe travels. Keep the wind to your back.

  3. Hey guys,

    Ben Meyer from WJFW TV in Rhinelander here. Dale, I’m looking to do a little status update on your journey, being someone from Antigo. Could we set up a time to talk on the phone? Shoot me an email at or call me at (175) 365-8812 ext. 321. Thanks!

    This summer I met Bill and Barbara on a trip to Uluru, Australia and this might be your mum and dad?
    Bill told some good stories about sharks and bears and the sailingtrip he is doing with you guys and how difficult it was going to be to pass the indian ocean. I am glad you all made it through!

    Please give him my and Dominique’s greetings from Holland and I hope you all will have a safe journey continuing sailing the world! (How amazing is that!)
