We are Sailors

We believe in the road less traveled, even if it isn’t a road at all.
We believe getting there isn’t half the fun; it’s all the fun.
We believe we could get where we’re going faster, but we wouldn’t be better when we got there.
We believe anything worth doing well isn’t for everyone.
