From Florida Today, via Asbury Park Press
In the winter of 1999, Rick and Suza Goltz — newly married and early retired from their jobs as engineers for the space shuttle program — set sail from Cape Canaveral, Fla., with two cats on a 44-foot sailboat named Voyager on what they dreamed might be an around-the-world adventure.

Bill Clinton was president. John Glenn had just returned to space on shuttle Discovery. Cameras still required film.

Fourteen-and-a-half years, two presidents and 52,000 nautical miles later, the couple are back home, having fulfilled a dream to circumnavigate the globe.

All times are CT (US)
