"I was only four when I saw my first stabbing - it was a drug deal gone bad.    I knew I had to be tough just to survive on the hill. My mom was a nurse but she got into drugs and left when I was nine. Odds were I'd have a kid by the time I was fifteen, like many of my friends. But I didn't want that - I wanted to get off the hill."

Captain Jacek Pasikowski


Live the Adventure: The Baltic Sea (somewhere on the way from the Swedish island of Utklippan to the Danish island of Christiansø).

"It was my first cruise on a yacht on the open sea and there were only two of us – myself and Captain Jacek Pasikowski. I was helping Jacek take his small yacht Fri (‘Free’ in Danish) from the coast of Sweden to Poland, across the Baltic Sea. It was a stormy day, but the captain – who has more than 40 years’ experience sailing in open seas – remained completely calm and relaxed, even though waves were breaking over him every few minutes."  Posted Tue 23 Jan, 2018 - (theGuardian)
