Re: What was your moment?

Sailing into La Coruna past the Tower of Hercules the 1800 year old lighthouse that marks the entrance. I was on my first big boat, at the start of a 7 year cruise, it was my first ever multi day passage and the first time I had used my sextant for real.

The feeling of following in the wake of all those mariners who had gone before and made the same landfall was pretty overwhelming.
