Altruism and Risk. The two go hand in hand. Over the years we have sailed into some of the most remote regions. We’ve anchored in front of some of the poorest villages. Not once have we encountered situations where someone has harmed us. This is not a coincidence. The world is filled with people who are genuinely interested in your welfare. If there is only one lesson we would take away from sailing half way around the world it would be exactly this. People are awesome.
