Everyone has dreams, but only a select few people have enough drive and dedication to make their dreams a reality. At the age of 18, William C. Troge, Captain Bill to those who know him best, began working on his Dream - a twelve foot long sailboat he built himself from the ground up. He intended to break four world records by sailing around the world, alone.

Before his Dream could become a reality, Bill met a variety of people who would lend him their support. Eventually, he met a group of men willing to back his venture with their own kind of support--$50,000 worth! With his financing in place, Captain Bill set off on his amazing voyage, sailing out of Oyster Bay into the sunset, just like he'd dreamed.

The experience and the lessons learned at sea became a part of him - are still a part of him - and shaped the man he was to become years later. His experiences are captivating, and inspiring, creating a story meant to be shared with anyone who has ever had a dream, or ever wanted to live one.
