昨晩、風が落ちているとき少しブルーとなったので元気を出すために、航海中に聞いている応援ソング 「Dream Weaver」を聞いた。この曲は、ブラインドのシンガーソングライターである、栗山龍太さんがこの航海のために特別に作ってくれたものだ。この曲を聴くと元気になる。 栗山さんは、2020年パラリンピック応援ソング「リアルビクトリー」も作られた方で、有名なシンガーソングライターです。栗山さんありがとうございます。

[ A song that gives me a power ]

The winds got low and we ended up motoring for 4 hours last night. Later this early morning, we suddenly got 15 to 20 kts. winds that allowed us to sail joyfully, then it’s gone completely after 3 hours. This reminds me of a bitter-sweet experience of my first love, that I thought, the girl’s behavior was trying to say she loved me, but that changed suddenly, and she bahaved differently again (lol)! We just turned engine back on 30 minutes ago, but winds are stronger again and we are sailing now!

When I was feeling blue in low winds last night, I listened to a song called “Dream Weaver” by a blind singer-songwriter, Ryota Kuriyama. He wrote this song for our voyage with a special thought and it gives me a power. Kuriyama-san is famous that he also wrote a song for Tokyo 2020 Paralympic, called “Real Victory”. Thank you, Kuriyama-san!

You can listen to the song from the YouTube link above.
