Decades of dreaming, transitioned into a decade of planning. After 20 years with Sony Pictures Studios, having built and/or expanded multiple post production service operations, Eric Rigney left his vice president position to sail around the world with his wife and two young sons (11 & 13) aboard their 42’ sailboat, Kandu. With the lives of his family on the line, safety was his highest priority followed by adventure, cultural immersions, and time together as a family. Four and half years of tremendous efforts later, the voyage ended successfully. They crossed 3 oceans,10 seas, 3 canals, and the world's most infamous pirate zone. They reached 6 continents and visited over 40 countries. Life lessons were learned along the way. A seafarer's descriptions of specific nautical events and pain-points that lead to epiphanies.
