The most wonderful thing about being closer to home is that people can easily come and visit. Our strategy was the following: We sailed directly from the Azores to Britanny, France to spend a whole month there, with an open invitation for friends and family to join us. My parents, Ruth and Reini, came to visit us for two weeks. All they had experienced so far from our life on Naïma was the very last, very stressful preparation time in Almerimar. Back then, their mission was to be our moral support back-office, cleaning for us, cooking for us, working on the boat with us and living on a very messy and dirty boat that never seemed to be ready. Now, a year later, it was time for them to join us on a sugar-sweet stressless sailing vacation in Northern France to see the other side of sailing-life. We sailed from Concarneau to Bénodet, then to the absolutely beautiful Îles de Glénan and finally to Loctudy and Audierne. Time went by much too quickly, but the experiences we got to share are never lost and will stay with us. I was proud to introduce my parents to all the sailing-tricks we had learned, to introduce them to our dolphin-friends, to share some beautiful nights at anchor and in the harbour and to light a spark of sailing-passion in their hearts.
