Adam Thomas – ‘Loving You, I’m Alive’

We’ve got two great tunes on our latest sailing video diary this week, and this is one of them: an uplifting, light-rock tune by Adam Thomas. Not normally our kind of music but it fits the clip and makes us happy. If you can’t see the clip or play it in the website, listen to it here.

Since the boat is pointing into the wind whilst tied to the mooring we get the mizzen and the mainsail out and, before we know it, we’re sailing for the first time in what seems like an age and a half.
