A man, his boat and a circumnavigation dream

Bo Cordle, all of 29, quit his dream job in 2011 to pursue his life's dream. He wants to sail around the world.

He's been talking about it for years now — he's got a blog, raised some money and had been living on a friend's boat in Orange Beach, Ala., for the past couple of years. But in October, he took a giant step toward making the dream a reality. He bought the boat — L'Attitude, a 1984 Brewer 42, and brought her home to Orange Beach from Sarasota, Fla. in late April.

And now that Bo has the boat, he has a timeline for leaving on his trip — a year and a half to two years.

“Getting the boat was huge,” he says. “Now it's more about trying to learn about the boat and getting the bank account right.”
