Today was a sad day: we said goodbye to our friend Frank – he stepped ashore and went home. As a Capitan, I accept and understand his choice, when the feeling of personal safety is above all other reasons to be on board. We are different in our understanding of the level of this safety, and I’m sorry that I cannot provide such confidence to him. Frank put a lot of energy and his soul into our boat to prepare her for a big trip. There are many things onboard that remind us of Frank and we appreciate everything he’s done to make our dream true. Now we are all by ourselves – me and Iryna.
