The sea was rough in the beginning, because we didn’t know anything, but slowly the intensity and uncertainty have become routine, and as a team, working together, the task tmctano. With time worked like a well-oiled machine, and yielded results: everyone knew what to do, under punctuality. The combination of the sea with physical difficulties and the independent campaigns, along with the ever-present uncertainty, lack of sleep and the fact that most of the time I was soaked in water, are the ones who built the auto makers, striving for excellence and the mental strength to continue.
