Samantha Davies: a boating adventure #TheFirstSecond


Sam Davies : A boating adventure I’m Sam Davies and this is my First Second. The first time
I ever set foot on a boat was when I was two weeks old. I spent lot of my childhood
weekends on holidays cruising with my parents. So sailing for me
was fun and a hobby. These boats are some of the fastest
monohulls on this planet. Nearly all the time it is a very very violent motion. Basically it is survival mode
to live inside. It’s really important for me to prepare my race before I leave and prepare my absence from home. Sometimes I even feel guilty that I forget that I am a mom. I forget that
I have got a life at home… Because I am
full on concentrating on my race. Now with Initiatives Care there is definitely another reason
why I am out there sailing. I am using maybe a bit of my luck to give something back
and try and make a change. One of my grandfathers
was a submarine commander who survived
the second world war. He gave me
his Saint Christopher. He told me,
he did not ask me, he told me to wear it so that it would keep me safe
for the rest of my life. When ever I start a big race there is always a question mark. We never know
what is going to happen. Despite the fact
I love the competition. I also love the adventure
part of what I do.
