SAILING as a FAMILY

To be honest with you we didn’t know if we could continue the adventure. But we always approach things with a Plan-B mentality. A way to divert and have the second best adventure if Plan A doesn’t work.

We’re finally setting sail and find out if we can sail with Levi.

You know we’re already spending time in the Caribbean because you’re either in touch with us, a part of the discord group, or follow our Instagram. Maybe it’s less exciting and we should stop spoiling 😉

But here’s some context:

We have never sailed with Levi on our own boat. Up until then we spent time in houses with help from friends and family. The first step was move on the boat and find a way to live on a boat in a marina. The comfort is greatly reduced, but we can sense the adventure. That makes up for that. Now we’re on our own, sailing short handed after not having sailed in half a year.. So sailing out of the slip for a daysail is our next step. We’re not making big leaps without some testing of equipment and mindset, so it’s baby steps, just like back in Greece where we didn’t know how to sail this boat. But we’re moving towards bigger goals. It’s crazy how now the sailing is something that _HAS_ to just work, without thinking much, much like driving a car, muscle memory,.. because our mind is somewhere else at all times. We also need to trust each other like never before, we’re on our own once we untie: One person is sailing, one person is with Levi. And even though we can call for a hand when things get sticky or we need more hands for a maneuver, it’s quite different. We are more or less… together alone.
