In Sardinia Prepping Boat
The other day I travelled from Copenhagen to Sardinia with other crew members of the mOcean team.
We went to Sardinia because they have a newly bought boat down here which is going to sail the atlantic ocean, and then the pacific ocean, in order to sail around with the boat I’m going to be a captain on down in the pacifics.
My “Job” Down Here
Is to teach the other guys how to sail this 51 feet Jenneau Sun Odyssey. And to take a look at the boat, and see how all the of the sailing mechanics is doing.
We spent the first couple of days by running through the entire boat. And then we moved on to do some small jobs before dinner, and after dinner we headed to the sea to see how she is doing at sea.
Meanwhile we are sailing, me and Alfred (grandkid of a famous danish sailor named Troels Kløvedal) is teaching the other guys all we know about sailing.
Being A Part of the Elite
While “elite” is a strong word.
Being able to do a mini retirement, and do another thing I love fulltime. (Hint, it is sailing). I’m able to say “Yes” to these kind of projects.
When I’m able to do that. I put myself in a position where we find many of the “pros”. If we have a full time job, we can’t go for a + 3 months course, like I have been doing. And we can’t say yes to show up in Sardinia or in the pacific ocean.
Because I can say yes to these kind of things. I’m able to hang around with the best in this field. And slowly becoming one myself.
This can be done in every chosen field. Instead of sailing for the last couple of months, I could have been doing Brazilian Jiu Jitsu (another hobby of mine) full time in an exotic place, with the best trainers, and where I only needed to worry about the training. I would fast become pretty good at it, and suddenly hang out with some of the best in Denmark, if not the world.
Being able to take a mini retirement can open so many doors you wouldn’t even dare to dream about. Meeting new people, which knows other awesome people.
Do you dare to go on a mini retirement??
