ďI got lonely and down about things sometimes. Iíd be all wet, stinking, it was hard to see my goal. I got close to the idea of dying. I felt unheroic, scared, blubbered and cried. I wished I wasnít there. The trip was a humbling experience. I was just a speck, but then, itís best to be a speck in a storm. I realized fatigue is the sailorís worst enemy.Ē
