While raising two teenaged daughters and a young son with his wife, Gregg A. Granger was inspired to change course. In 2003, Gregg and his family boarded their sailboat, purchased for this purpose and with slight previous sailing experience, and spent the next 4 1/2 years sailing around the world.
Gregg is gifted with his hands–a requirement for such a venture–and managed to keep s/v Faith operatio
