Ahoy! Welcome Aboard Knots & Thoughts!

I’m Captain Plante. I write fun and entertaining blog posts from my sail boat, Venture. If you’re cool with a respectful yet unfiltered point of view, then you’re in the right place. You can also view our projected upcoming sailing adventures via the countdown above. We just finished a 4-day sail from Annapolis, MD to Norfolk, VA. We experienced glass seas and light winds as we crossed the Chesapeake. We will have a consolidated video of the voyage to share with you soon.

We’ve currently extended our stay in Norfolk, VA through the end of March (possibly April). During this time Venture will be receiving some instrument and electrical upgrades.

We welcome feedback and would love to hear any new ideas or collaborative concepts you have, so don’t be a stranger.

Reach out.

We hope you enjoy!
