"To me, this trip has helped me open up to people. This trip is also an experience which will help me along the path to both college and a sailing lifestyle. The skills of making new friends and tall ships sailing, which were so new on the Lynx have been solidified in my mind. I feel the end of the trip approaching, and it feels sad.
It also feels happy, however. This is because I know this is one step closer on the highway. One new experience that will effect the rest of my life."
