    Thank you for the adventure! My friends are taking me out for a day of sailing, so I decided to do some research on the topic of ‘sailors.’ It occurred to me that man has been sailing for centuries, so there must be some legendary ‘sailing quotes.’ Google – ‘sailing quotes’….and there it was! My sailing friends have now turned their sailing friends on to your website. Sailors I’ve learned are adventurous, but cautious. Out there on the ocean….surrounded by the blues!
