The trip itself brought a great selection of different weather and temperature, dolphins, long night watches, and much humour as Mario started to get used to life onboard a sailing vessel. And when we finally made landfall in Liverpool he was a very different person... but I will leave you with his quote to sum it up better:
"I am a Neuroendocrine cancer patient. I was looking for a complimentary treatment to my cancer, and came up with the idea of using sailing as a way of dealing with my unpredictable terminal cancer diagnosis. So I searched all the cancer charities, but unfortunately none had any knowledge of charities which could help cancer patients with sailing for adults. I feel very lucky to have come across James Lovett's website where he took people out on sailing trips.
I recommend James highly to you as, James does not just focus on the sailing but more importantly on his crews well being, and safety.
I have just sailed again with James from Liverpool to Conwy, and back (October 2019). I thank him for introducing me to the ways of the sea and its great potential for healing the spirit while in awe of the beauty that is mother nature. I know that sailing is impossible to measure against ones illness, but let me assure you that sailing with James has been immeasurable to my spirit, as it lets me take back some control and joy in my life which medicine/surgery sadly cannot. This has strengthened me in ways that I cannot express. What great fun, and laughter I had at sea are my fond memories of sailing with James and his crew."
Beautiful young people are accidents of nature, but beautiful old people are works of art."
