Romancing your Dream or Flogging your Sails



Carol Gillstrom

Romancing your Dream or Flogging your Sails

In my forties, my partner asked me, a non-sailor, to build a boat and sail around the world together. My response was, “OK! Let’s do it! …What would your reaction to that question be? Explore the challenges that keep you and your partner from pursuing the cruising dream? …Issues of fear and trust, lifestyle and relationship are examined; with ample time for your questions. Topics discussed will help you tailor your plan. Discover what’s keeping you or your partner on the edge of the dock? What might happen if you let go your lines? Carol’s Insight and experience will open your eyes to the possibility of cruising worldwide with your soul mate!


Ken and Carol live and conduct sail training adventures on their custom designed/built aluminum cutter, Voyageur 10.10. Combined, they have logged over 100,000 miles. During the past 16 years they have presented hundreds of seminars on boating related topics. These seminars encourage would-be cruisers to pursue their cruising goals. First-hand experience and practical approach help you take your cruising goals from a “dream” to “reality”. Their “Safety-first” mind set will steer you away from some of the more common pitfalls. You, too, can enjoy safe and memorable cruising adventures on the high seas! You can check out their adventures and sailing courses at or Facebook “Voyageur Sailing”.
