Landing….after an Atlantic figure of eight – 15 000 nautical miles alone

Emma

So I have now been home for a week, though it does feel much longer. The journey is now already in the past and I am trying to adjust to life on land whilst not enirely loosing the deep and calm feeling of peace I found at sea. (Wish me good luck!)

I am very happy to be home and to be amongst loved ones again. At the same time there is a little sadness somewhere deep down that this special time is now over. But there is a time and a place for everything and I am just so greatful to have had the journey that I did. Now a new one will begin on land with different kinds of joys and challenges which I look forward to. This includes earning money somehow, putting some roots down and invest time with the people whom I love.

Sailing will always be part of my life and I am sure I will sail the big seas again at some point in my life. In the meantime I will explore the destinations more nearby during the summers.

Caprice

Caprice’s engine needs to come out and I decided to sail her to Svanesund to attempt this job there, having some local support from an old friend who is very experienced with engines. I am not, but I am about to learn! To hand the job entirely over to a workshop could end up being VERY expensive.

I am not sure yet if I will keep Caprice or sell her on to someone else who wants to do some long distance sailing which she is so well suited for.

 

 

The Blog

There is so much to write and I have a lot of videos and photos. I will post my story bit by bit so keep an ear out. I am also planning to make a film, maybe write a book and give some talks. I am very happy to share my experience in all the ways that I can, as it was so special and unique and I hope to inspire others to take that step and follow a dream, whatever that dream may be!
