But, after a year of successful and close cooperation, we are more than sure that he has some very good stories to tell. As he himself says, we in ANA accepted him as one of our own, so it isn't surprising that the majority of experts in blog's expert team, are ANA's instructors. Why he started sailing and why he came to ANA at all you can read in his first post – I sail, therefore I am
