Northern Campaign Side Effects

Well Northern Campaign 2014 has bought out a period of great personal growth for me, and the funny thing is it wasn't about me! It was supposed to be about enriching the lives of kids! But as a curious side effect I have grown a lot as a human and this is not just me. It is a side effect of a lot of people who embark on this journey year after year.  I feel (as does the likes of Dalai Lama) that when one does selfless service to others less fortunate than oneself, one cannot help but to benefit. The cosmic karma maybe!

Northern Campaign 2014

Today I had a beautiful little boy who was profoundly deaf as well as autistic who touched my heart and my soul. He sat on the rail watching the water and all it's hues of colours. Then he discovered my hands were different because I had sailing gloves on. He spent the best part of 40 minutes studying and feeling the difference between the the different fabrics on them. I wear these gloves everyday and haven't really taken much notice but today I did!

Southport kids love time on faceboat

Kids from local Southport Schools had a fantastic time on board faceboat. They splashed their feet in the water and enjoyed watching a pod of dolphins swim up to their side of the boat.

faceboat arrives safely in Southport

faceboat arrives safely in Southport after a bumpy ride North - the crew were all a bit seasick but arrived in great spirits and quickly made the most of the warm weather to dry out their wet gear
