Fort Lauderdale, FL

On the first day of 2010, I turned 50. We were poised precariously on the edge of our sailing life. The TO DO list created all the way back in 2008 looked like this:

1. Sell the wine shop
XXXX2. Sell the house -- July 31, 2009
3. Sell the current boat
4. Buy our cruising boat.

Not such a great pace we had going when you look at it that way. But in December 2009, we had made an offer on an Island Packet 380 and were waiting for the Chesapeake to thaw out enough for a sea trial. If all went well, we had one item keeping us from sailing away: Sell the wine shop.

Here's how it happened: OUR STORY: 2010.

In case you missed it, the first two parts are here: 2008 :: 2009
