Its not often working on yachts that you get the chance to live on land. However luckily for us the boat needed some serious tlc and after living in a small cabin for 3 years straight we needed some too, so we moved off the boat and into a top floor flat overlooking Auckland’s viaduct.
So I started.
I have learnt that there are different intensities of blue beyond bright blue. I have watched dolphins play and whales breach from arms length. I have seen sunsets, which look graphically enhanced. I understand the differences between “rolling” and “pitching” in heavy seas. I have lost the concept of time. I have sailed the Atlantic Ocean.
