Murray and Heather Rand sold their St. Thomas, Ontario, Canada home in the spring of 1997 and moved aboard Windswept IV, a C&C 40 sailboat. That summer, they retired from their jobs and began their travels. Since then, they head south to the Bahamas for the winter and come back to Canada for the summer.
Of course, this is not something they just did on the spur of the moment. They were planning this for many years before it happened. You can hear more about how well things went during their travels by reading their messages or checking out what they have learned.
