This year is a special year for me, maybe for us all. We cross the atlantic
for the first time. Exactly 9 month before the official start I ordered my
berth. From that moment on it´s like to be expecting a baby.
My name is Mike, I´m 56 years old and I started with sailing at the end of
the 70ies in Ibiza/Spain. During the 80ies mostly time I was sailing with
jolly-boats and catamaran. In the end of the 90ies I´ve got my first
experiences on cruisers. I cruised in the mediterranean sea, the Baltic sea
and a long the Great Barrier Reef.
And it´s every time the moment of truth:
"A quit wind moves across the surface of the water. The sea and the sky are
shinning in a unreality blue. Slowly the waves touch the Ahead- the water
behind us give us a unstressed noise. Time and space are going slowly, the
world concentrates himself of the here and now."
And to get more of this, I´m very happy to be part of the crew SY "Via con
me" during the ARC 2011. Always fair winds - Mike
