"Sailing the new (old) boat the other day, I passed under the Daytona Beach Main Street Bridge, I was amazed to think that 40 years ago, I would fish off that bridge. Little did I imagine myself going under that bridge in my sailboat on our way to Central America. If I could have glimpsed into the future then, I would have been very pleased. This feels good."

Captain's Log, 9/26/13:

"Have not been near internet much.. We have the boat in New Symrna and we came over to do a quick visit with the family. We go back tomorrow and start heading around Florida up to Tampa Bay. I mashed the end of my finger opening the berth to go to sleep. The last effort of the day... and haven't played any. It is almost healed. Looking forward to getting ocean-bound again soon!"

New Brunswick to St. Pete

Captain's Log, 9/21/2013:

"Good to be at sea again! This reminds me of my old voyages - I included a picture of one of my old boats in this, my first offshore blog-post.

I have cast off and am making good progress.. Just about have the boat rigged out. I figured might as well get her fixed up while here in Brunswick as wait until getting to St. Pete. Then I get to better enjoy the sail around to St. Pete.

One challenge so far has been staying connected to the Internet while at sea - but so far so good.. Looking forward to arriving in St. Pete soon.

Stay tuned for more, or check out my website which will be updated soon.


Getting Under Way!

Follow yacht-builder, sailor and author Glenn Henderson as he journeys from Florida to Costa Rica aboard his new sailboat! This blog will keep up with Glenn as he makes a passage similar to the one in his upcoming novel, "Change of Course", the story of Griff and Jeff, and a journey of unimaginable wonder and adventure!

Henderson's witty-gritty writing style blends with his unique experiences at sea, and numerous ocean-voyages, to create an authentic sailor-tale! Now he is making that same journey again, in 2013.

Having bought a new sailboat and readied it for his passage to Costa Rica, Henderson will be blogging here about his voyage, and talking about the upcoming book, as well as his short stories.

"These stories are technically fiction but almost all off them are based on real and true incidents. I got into story telling sideways. Every time I would end up in a social situation with other sailors, we naturally would start telling sea stories. At the end of the evening my wife would tell me, "You should write all of that down.. so I did!"

This September, set sail with Glenn on the Atlantic Ocean, and enjoy his blog, as he writes about this 2013 journey from the United States to Florida aboard his new boat. YOu never know what adventures are in store!
