Female 2012 . How my life was changed by Sailaday Ok sessions.

I am interested in becoming a trustee because not only because of how it has had a positive affect on myself, but also what I have seen in other people. This last time I went sailing it suddenly made sense; I could really see how the sailing relates to recovery. In life one cannot see the journey, the way it changes and brings the challenges, but in the the sailing there was a real aspect/dimension to having to deal with challenges, the rough sea; being able to physically see the boat go off course and how it is possible to steer it back on course; how important the team is, that is is impossible to manage alone without guidance, support and personal recognition of ones abilities as well as limitations. Learning to trust the right people around oneself. That as long as a course has been set and a point or goal is able to be aimed for then it is OK to not go in a straight line; no one sails in a straight line. 

To be in an environment where, as one sailor described it, 'leave your skin at the peer'. Everything we use to hide behind in our lives is left behind, our creature comforts as one may say. No use for make up, no squeaky clean facilities; it's back down to basics, to our inner core, to our real being; learning how to deal with that and ride the waters in good and rough weather and knowing when to seek shelter in the harbour. 

For people to make that connection either consciously or unconsciously can make a real difference; an awareness not really able to be established anywhere else, that is why I feel sailaday is so vital, for people to get that opportunity of connection to themselves and their life.
