Among the experiences I had the happiness and the privilege of experiencing, certainly sailing in the company of Mauricio aboard the Thalassa deserves a special mention.
I’d never sailed before. I saw the Milky Way with the naked eye on the high sea!
Thanks to Captain Mauricio’s patience, I learned the Mainsail trimmer job, and soon I was promoted to the vice champion tripulation of the 41st Ilhabela Sailing Week, held in 2014, within its category.
Thanks to its pleasant personality, Maurício forms many sailors, and some today are happy captains of their own sailboat.
