Building Your Dreams

It’s always inspirational to see people fulfil their dreams, even more so when those people are your parents.

That’s one reason I’m so proud of mine and their most recent endeavour – building the sailing boat of their dreams – a Colin Archer yacht.

Living on the other side of the world, I couldn’t do much to support this family project.

Instead, I created a website www.esmeraldaafpitea.com so visitors can see their masterpiece, and perhaps be inspired to follow their own dreams.

It’s also designed to help boat builders and sailors around the world connect and share their knowledge and experience.
