In the fall of 2018, a Californian divorcee and father of two decided to seek a change of pace and purchased a Beneteau Sense 50' sailboat named Grateful in Turgutreis, Turkey. With Grateful as his vessel, he set off on a sailing adventure to explore the world. Over the past year, Grateful has sailed over 23,000 miles in the Mediterranean, from Turkey to Ibiza and the Canaries and back. Along the way, the crew on board has varied, with different individuals joining for different durations. Captain Duane shares the joy of fulfilling a lifelong dream.
