When I fly in a plane across a vast expanse of ocean, I often wonder what it would feel like to be out there alone, just you, a boat, and the elements. How would I fare facing massive storm pushed waves in the dark of night, alone and frightened as the ocean tried to consume my tiny vessel? What would I learn of myself day after day as I clear my mind of the worldly worries that consume us all, to focus on the cycle of "eat, sleep, sail".
Lisa Blair can give us the answers. She speaks of the benefits of giving one's self a seemingly impossible task, coming close to failure and then making one of the greatest comebacks of all time. Lisa speaks bravely of minimising risk, but then when everything still fails, of how she found resolve and strength that I suspect even she didn't realise she possessed. She is an extraordinary example of "what nearly kills you, makes you stronger."
*Apologies to all sailors for calling a shroud a halyard and goodness knows what else. I prefer motor boats!
