Rite of passage

Hoist the mast!

As one story ends, new begins. Even Benjamin Button knew it, though his stranding techniques in clip above☝🏼 would get my ship wrecked pretty fast. (No matter how handsome Pitt is in the scene…)😍🤔😳

And between ends and beginnings, it is crucial to do the rite of passage: Really finish what was old, so one could start a new. It is a old trick, that if you don’t do your rite, you end up in limbo and carry aaaaaall unfinished businesses with you, and are unable to go forward in life

And now we had change of guard on beautiful yacht lady Anjou, FinnFlyer 31. Former skipper Jonni, very dear friend for me, handed me his skipper boots. As I’ve sailed under his command, I have to give him my fullest respects as a skipper: You really have to find more calmer skipper than he is.

I’m still happy to keep that man in my life, but on Anjou, we had to do our rite of passage with my co-owner and first mate Riina. What we did? We’ve been cleaning, washing, organizing, checking the gear, overhauling the ropes and going through the list need to be done to restore our baby. And all happened in summer solstice, under nightless scandinavian midsummer. Time for celebration, skål på den saken! 🥂

FinnFlyer is smooth and surprisingly fast beauty, but as all dames, they need to be cherished, pampered and LOVED. We have a lot to do to get our lady race a bit, but she is loving her new rising already. First trainings ahead, ahoy! Follow our AnjouCrew’s journey in instagram.

Proper breakfast for our initiation rite.

“Everyone says love hurts, but that is not true. Loneliness hurts. Rejection hurts. Losing someone hurts. Envy hurts. Everyone gets these things confused with love, but in reality love is the only thing in this world that covers up all pain and makes someone feel wonderful again. Love is the only thing in this world that does not hurt.”
