Brain Hemorrhage Ends Pilot’s Career So He Lives Out His Dream On A Sailboat — Sailing Doodles

Bobby White had an 18 year career going as a pilot flying corporate jets all over the world. He was livin’ the dream when one day he woke up with a horrible headache. That headache was actually a brain hemorrhage which forced him to surrender his pilot’s license. His career and way of life ended just like that.

Instead of feeling sorry for himself he sold everything he owned and bought a sailboat to embark on another one of his dreams of sailing the oceans.

“You will never be ready. Just set a date and make it happen.”

Listen to Bobby and Megan’s story on episode #58.

Just one year ago, him and his friend Megan and their two Labradoodles jumped on that boat, sailed out of Galveston and started filming their journey and they’ve gone from zero to over 40,000 YouTube subscribers and now racking up over a million and a half views per month and along the way they are inspiring others to pursue dreams of their own.
