What would you do after a long period sailing with your family? In our case, life will never be the same as before. We know what we want ; our priorities have changed and are clear. We have spent a long period of time in permanent connection with the sea, and we want to protect it. And we want to be back on the blue as soon as possible.
Did I ever talk about positive discipline? I made it, I am becoming a positive discipline facilitator, I have already started practising and I am really enjoying it. I found a super partner and in November we are going to start practising online together.
We arrived to Meganisi by the end of June, after some weeks sailing in the Mediterranean sea during the mid season (at that time, most of the boats that we came across at the anchorages where liveaboards). We spent July in the nice Ionian islands (from Olympia to Corfu); some places were very touristic with plenty of charters boats and people spending one or two weeks of holidays sailing. We also knew at that time that we were on our way back to France for a break in our sailing. It was great to be in such beautiful islands to start digesting all the thoughts, emotions and feelings of the previous year.
We use to hear/read about sailing from Mediterranean sea to the Canary Islands but we can hardly find any information about sailing from the Canary Islands to Mediterranean sea. Sailing back to the Mediterranean sea from Canary Islands is going against the trade winds (Alisios), which is more difficult than going with the trade winds that is what most of the people are doing when going to the Caribean, but it is not impossible.
We have been sailing and visiting Madeira with our friends from SV Dunia. Dunia's crew is a German family. It has been a great experience to spend time together, being part of the same family.

We went through the design thinking loop for several iterations, adapting our boat homeschooling technique to our needs. After some iterations, we would like to share with you what is working for us
3 weeks ago, I gave my first conference about Agile4Life. What an opportunity to inspire others sharing our journey! I really enjoy sharing some of my passions: family, agility and sailing.
From Puerto Sherry (Spain), we went to Portimão (Portugal). Our goal was to ensure that the boat was working well after all work that had been done - especially on the steering gear, before going to the Canaries Islands. Everything worked good and after some hopefully final tuning in Portimão, we would leave Europe behind and reach Rabat in Morocco.
We loved Cartagena with all its small museums and people from Cartagena have proved many times to be really friendly. We spent more time in the marina than we initially anticipated but it has been a great opportunity for us to explore a city rich in culture.
3 months ago I gave a try to the kudo cards at home, the kids created their own family kudobox and the kudo cards. From that day, during the week any family member can post a kudo card in the box and at the end of the week in our family retrospective meeting we open the box.
