Working in dust

This spring I have some huge works to do and lots of finance to collect. But before I come there I needed to do some other works. Polishing and staying in dust for hours. That isn't some exiting news. Oh, but I have one nice memory to share. I joined the regatta  for "Slovenia Maritime Day". The wind was strong and it was quite an adventure. There were many crews resigning. In the evening special ceremony was held with guest keynote speaker, European Commissioner Violeta Bulc, who promised to visit Cassiopeia.

Involvement

There are some people that are helping me at work. Especially my family members and my mentor Ivica who spend many volunteer hours instructing me. His knowledge and experiences are very special and hard to find these days.
I've put around 2000 working hours in the past 1,5 year into Cassiopeia besides high school, sport's sailing and other activities. And I'm very thankful to all the people that helped me realizing my dreams. There's still lots of work to do and I have a very strong will and determination.
