Photo Gallery > Adjusting Your Lifestyle to Include More Sailing, and Ways to Accomplish It

Tom Gilmore built a 46-foot sailboat and raised his now PhD daughter on board. Before that, he sailed double-handed from the United States to England, France, the Mediterranean and back. Since then, he has rebuilt a $400,000 boat that he bought for $1,500. His recent voyages have taken him to Maine in the summer and the Florida Keys during winter months, with another winter in Florida aboard a small power boat that he towed behind his pickup. Tom inspired us all with his ideas on adjusting your lifestyle to include more sailing. Using photographs from his own adventures, Tom broke down the questions of “ When, Where and How.” Although Tom entertained us with stories about some of his own far-flung sailing adventures, he also included the concepts of weekend sailing and the treasures of the Delaware and Chesapeake Bays in his talk. In other words, “Just Do It NOW ” – regardless of where and what kind of boat.
