I caught the sailing bug about 5 years ago after a recommendation from a friend. My wife and I really got into it at the time, and passed as Day Skippers within the year. We then spent a summer bareboating in Greece and loved it. Five years on and we now have 2 daughters. Family life packs the weekends full, and we don’t get to sail as much as I’d like at the moment. However, RTIR is the exception! This will be my fourth RTIR and my only time sailing since last year’s race. Looking forward to getting back onboard with the familiar crew and beating Nomad just once! Looking to the future, we do want to make sailing part of family life. And once the girls are competent swimmers, we’ll be back out there at every opportunity. And the annual RTIR helps to keep the dream alive!
