Having kept their heads above water throughout several recessions they're fortunate that their business continues to be steady and they get time to do what they do best: go sailing. "You never have the same project twice so that keeps it interesting," Vicki said. "We still enjoy it because it gets us out and about, and we meet lots of interesting people."..."
