After resting healer here I am again facing my office a few days ago I discovered all your messages of support. And it makes me really heart-warming. What a joy to see that during the challenge, positive waves have traveled by hundreds on the web. It's fantastic, a great gift. Thank you.
For my part, I'm back in Britain. The time is now in the balance sheet. That emotions experienced since the start of preparation until the arrival of STEF Transatlantic Windsurf. A rich learning that allowed me to create a project and complete it. The decision to stop for a sports High Level has not been easy, but in exceptional circumstances, exceptional decision. A bout of strength, my life was in danger. Only on my board, I could only count on me to get out. Later the boat was there follower, but I was three quarters of the time only to see them. Loss of consciousness in such a context could have been dramatic. Then once back on board, rest and after a vain attempt to start, I took the time to think. I thought the mother Floch,, illustrious character of the Quiberon peninsula, which in 80 years (if not more) always works alone and griddle. Before I left she said, "especially if it is too hard and that it is no longer possible, stop you. Life is good and valuable, he must take care. You remember what I told you ?!Â». I also thought the services of CPR I have known, and all patients that I have come across, and I thought the game was not worth the candle. I realized that I had been lucky to live it all, all these beautiful and tough days at sea, succeed and that it was also able to say stop. So I have taken five minutes to climb the few stairs to the starboard hull and went to tell my decision to Captain. It's amazing how sometimes the time is idling !
Ensued nights under the full moon from the Atlantic to watch the plankton in the wake of the boat and to understand what had happened. The magic was always there, and over water my strength returned. The blurred vision lasted a few days, and then one morning a few miles from the finish, dying to navigate back to me with the force required to do so. So one last time, to arrive in Guadeloupe with my friends windsurfer, I rigged my gear and I threw myself into the water. Intense pleasure to be back in my element. The arrival was very warm, although in these cases everything is done to the sailor at ease, his heart is still at sea. Assaulted by noise and the world, I had the impression that as the baby comes out of the womb.
Today I feel better physically and I found my bearings on the waves of the beautiful coast of the peninsula of Quiberon.
The beauty of this adventure was the path, because the key is not so much the goal but the choice we made for touch. This path was worthy of a novel. I met some great people, I spoke with my heart, and they replied with their. There is a lot of work and even concession to mount such an expedition, but the reward is equal to the energy expended. I am rich from what I've lived, and I still do not measure the benefits.
Your stories have touched me, know you share my message has a lot of sense to me. I am not a woman invincible, nature was stronger than me, this time she did not let go, but it will not always be the case. Anyway no matter, I'm glad I lived my dream.
For the rest it is a beautiful blank page for me with open arms, to me to give to their heart desires in order to draw my.
