FIRST BABY STEPS ON A SAILBOAT

PREVIOUS / NEXT

SAILING by KRISS on 21 july 2017

How impatient can we be to start our new life adventure ! Actually a lot but I have come to understand that this phase of preparation and setting up is as important and determinant to the enjoyment of the adventure.
When people say it’s not the destination that counts it’s the journey, I guess that’s what is meant.

And through this preparation of our new life, one of the most enjoyable part is to sail the boat that Jorge let me sail with him, his own.
She’s a 37 foot sailboat and you can charter with us (Granada Sailing, you can contact me for further details or contact Jorge directly 0034 685 998822).

Anyways, I have taken my little one, the ultra dynamic one, the ball of energy, I have named Rose and I was confident in her on a boat, and I was right.
She got over excited when we saw dolphins but kept her brains with her.
I think this life on the sea is going to be a big game changer for her and consequently for us.

I’ve watched her go about on that boat for a few hours (almost the whole day) and could tell unmistakably how confident and in her element she felt.

The more experienced eye of Jorge confirmed me that.

So that’s 2 of the kids out of 3 who have been one the boat with me.
Now I need to take my first love with me and quite a few times before we get our own boat.
And then there will be my son who perhaps will switch from his current my bedroom my computer my bed life to sailing the world with no preparation since he voluntarily skips any opportunity given to him to sail.
I don’t mind, we’ve all been there, teenage years are not a comfortable spot, I let him be for now, I acknowledge his need to emancipate from us in his own way, I listen carefully to the words he choses and I have noticed he speaks about the boat without including himself “when you’ll get your boat” not “our boat”.
But again I don’t mind, his need for “yours” vs “mine” is not such a big deal, he’ll soon have to deal with more down to earth daily occupations… I mean, all sexism bullshit put aside, he’s the second man aboard besides me !

So I am posting these photographs of the first baby steps of the baby in the family… shall this new life grow beautiful and accomplished beings in all of them kids of mine !
