Our Mission

I am Luke Henderson.

Three years ago I was introduced to offshore sailing. In 2005, my crew and I will attempt to circumnavigate the Continent of South America under sail in my 36-foot, steel-hulled sloop called Shangri-La.

We will use state-of-the-art technology along with energy, determination and teamwork. Our healthy respect for Mother Nature and her oceans may dictate the course we ultimately navigate, but nothing will stand in the way of our pursuit of this year-long quest.

We will define our success not only in terms of where we finish, but also in how we pursue the goal.

We invite you to follow our journey at windhorsesailing.com/news/.
