Pink Lady's First Sail



Out sailing for the first time on a perfect Sunshine Coast day! We were very impressed with the crunchy new sails from Ullman sails and David Lambournes fantastic rig. My face is still sore from grinning and how cute does Pink Lady look?!

Way cool Jessica,
I wonder what the whales will say, when they see that heavenly apparition of pink?
I don't know, why I am so excited, YOU are about to embark on the adventure of a lifetime! I am a land lubber presently in Austria!
I think it is the stirring of the potential in each person's soul, who read and follow your blog!
God speed,
Trudy

Well, I really do hope that you know a little more about electrics than just to push the right buttons and that the use of a spanner holds no secrets to you either. Pink is definitely not my favoured colour and I probably would have chosen a faster ship, but you got to make do with what you get, eh? Nevertheless, it's a very good ship and I'm looking forward very much to following your voyage on the web; All the best wishes to you, never a day of boredom or distress and a safe voyage - I shall be thinking of you when I set sail for the North Sea next thursday.

I can't believe you found that much pink paint... saw her down at Lawries last week... certainly hard to miss. ha ha.

All the best Karl

Congratulations from Brazil, Jessica. I told my daughters Sara and Vitoria(they are aged 8 and 5) about you and you boat and your voyage. They would not believe me until I showed them some pics form Internet. They loved "Pink Lady"'s color and the whole story, but were a bit worried you'd feel alone without anyone to play with all that time or that your parents would be angry with you if they found out you had gone to the sea all alone... But I told them "driving a boat" is your favorite thing, and that your parents are OK with it and help you; and that you'd take a telephone and radio and would be just fine. I'll be translating your blog for them form now on. Thanks for what you are doing for girls all over the world, darling. Fair winds and goods tides for you is the wish of us all.

Lots of love,

Adriana
