What Really Happens when you’re Sailing Around the World (Sailing La Vagabonde) Ep. 44

For me, sometimes extreme boredom, frustration with the motion of the boat, feeling isolated/alone, and missing friends and family bucket loads can lead to a little bit of a breakdown every now and then. I’m only human! There are always dramas onboard (EVERYONE has them), weather it be physical or mental. When La Vaga has been rocking and rolling back and …
