A TRUE STORY
I am Lucas, sailor by vocation, I love the sea and have spent a lifetime aboard many types of vessel, first as a skipper then as an owner. I want to tell you a true story from a few years ago.
On a warm evening moored in the motionless bay of Porto-Ferrario, I lay on the nets of my first catamaran, I listened and spoke to a young girl laying next to me, a guest who had come to spend a weekend on my first catamaran. She told me she loved the sea and would like to live on a boat but she was working in a warehouse for the Coop.
She has dreams, she wants to escape, get away from what feels like a lifetime prison to her – many people say this to me – although I see a spark in her, could it be the determination in her voice or her radiance; there was something about her that made me believe she could make it and this is what I said to her: “I think you could really do it, and if you would like I can help you to get away from it all by presenting you to someone who could help introduce you to this wonderful world”.
The weekend drew to a close and everyone went home, but in her there was a real spark and without thinking about it twice she resigned from her job
