Fair winds and following seas is a nautical blessing with no direct attribution (meaning who the hell knows where it came from).
Some say that the saying was lifted from literature, which could very well be true. After all, more than one artist made something extremely cool with no credit to the original.
Most dictionaries give its meaning as “farewell and have a safe journey” or something along these lines.
As someone who looks up quotes often I’m always amazed at how many people are credited with the same quote. We see this with songs too.
Fair winds and following seas, wherever your travels take you.
