Had my sister not sailed before me,  I might have thought that it wasn't for me,

Had my sister not told me that I could do it,  I may not have had the courage to apply.

Had I never applied, I could have never been chosen.

I went thinking I would be taught how to sail, but what I learned most was about myself.

I went, scared, unsure but excited, but I came back happy, proud and joyful.

Had my sister not sailed before me, I never would have had the adventure of my life.

So for those not as lucky as me, who don't have a sister that's sailed before them;

It is for you! You can do it! So apply and have yourself an adventure too!
