There is an incredibly beautiful anchorage called Ankena on the north shore, about 100 m wide with a lovely beach at the top with resurrected statues (most of the statues are still lying down). Only problem with this anchorage is that it would be a death trap with anything from the north.
I stole this paragraph and save that in my iPad for future reference.
I read, think, and act independently; I don't come here to win a popular contest, nor I am here for free sex. I come here to learn, be challenged and be inspired in the art of safe off-shore passage. I am NOT afraid of dying in the sea, but I am afraid of dying in a nursing home and burdening those who I love.
I am old school; doing the right even when no one is watching is important to me.
