"Now inside the boat – an exhibition of drawings"
Here is Irina Gracheva's new post posted on her Facebook page Irina Gracheva Racing Mini-Transat 2019:
Almost 2 weeks of waiting for the start became very important for me. I managed to relax, to finish all the important things with dignity, to check all the equipment again – and …
… to meet wonderful kids from a school in a small town near La Rochelle. I managed to speak French with the guys, show all the most interesting things on my boat.
Sometimes I wonder what serious questions about single yachting arise in the head of a 6-year-old man who has not yet gone to sea!
And in the class there is a Russian boy Emil, with whom we talked a little in our native language! And the teacher also has Russian roots, and he recently learned about the existence of relatives in St. Petersburg, with whom he is now establishing contacts.
Now inside the boat I have a real exhibition of drawings and many good wishes from the guys!
