I learnt a great deal and understood how to work and manoeuvre this beautiful, 86-feet-long sailboat, which was our home for two amazing weeks. I cut down on my drug use and got back into shape. I can see myself continuing down that path. This experience invigorated my spirit and highlighted my love of life.
I am now completing high school. After that, I plan on studying woodworking and on doing a seamanship course which I think I’m capable of achieving.
So many thanks to you, Joelle, Mariano and Simon, for such an unforgettable adventure.
Your new sailor, Gabriel
