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 recently 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 found a nice home for Venture in Virginia and are currently looking at Annual slips in the area. The plan is still to make it to Charleston, although taking some time to regroup and get work done is the current priority.

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!

Navigating Life’s Storms: Why All Those Who Wander, are Not Lost

As I sit on the deck of my sailboat, surrounded by the vast ocean, I am reminded of the words of J.R.R. Tolkien: “Not all who wander are lost.” In a world that is constantly in turmoil, with broken economies and political chaos, it can be easy to feel lost and adrift. But for those…
