Why Sailing Rules

In the early days of cruising after a really rough multi night passage we entered Coffs Harbour exhausted not being able to figure out which berth we were in, lines and fenders in a muddle fed up and screaming at each other.

As we entered our berth we met Kristi for the first time. A smiling kind women she quickly ran to grab our lines and then over the next few weeks showed two newbie cruisers/parents great kindness.

We count her a friend and her story of how sailing changed her life is below.

Astounding. Well done to her, and anyone who climbs above their challenges.
