“Attitude is far more important than skill if you’re looking for
success,” declared solo Atlantic rower Debra Searle MBE, speaking at ShipMoney’s LISW19 event. The hall was buzzing with questions after the presentation. As promised, the audience was given several different strategies to help achieve their goals, including the key message of choosing a positive attitude each day. However, it wasn’t just these techniques for success that delegates took away from the session,
but also the sense of how great a challenge rowing across the Atlantic proved to be – the crippling loneliness, lack of sleep and fear of sharks,
contrasting with the highs of sur ng vast waves, sharing the ocean with all manner of sea creatures and the sheer beauty of the ocean. For many this gave a much greater understanding of the challenges, and joys, of being a seafarer today.
