I thought being skipper meant inherent calmness, lonely personallities. Izabel just broke this idea I had. I met her in Madeira Island, the last stop of my failed transatlantic with a sailing boat. For her, it became a job, she is the first Brazilian women crossing the Atlantic single-handed. Before she left another time to finish her solitary, she told me a bit about her trips that only her can describe.
