Exactly 10 years ago at offshore worksite northern storm ripped away the container where the equipments of my young commercial diving company were stored, it drifted away during the night and flooded because of the holes cut into it and finally sank. Never found, it was a total loss.
What comes to sailing, all the money that I had saved for a boat and one year’s voyage went to starting my company again, which was hard during long economical depression. So I bought the only boat that I could afford by the price of recycling metal.
The boat was aluminium yacht Li, which inspired the design project of new boat and gave her name to Li Yachts. Interesting point here is that a tragedy can also be a new beginning with an unknown and interesting direction – an adventure.
