April 8, 2021 | 0 Comments

Mustang Survival recently featured Bermudian sailor Emily Nagel in the fourth episode of their video series entitled “Live Beyond Land.”

The video description says, “From the young age of 10, Mustang Survival ambassador, Emily Nagel, knew exactly what she wanted to do: sail.

“Life in Emily’s eyes gets simpler on the water. Growing up in Bermuda, and living a life in and on the water as long as she can remember, she’s got saltwater in her veins. Taking her ‘life = sailing’ motto seriously, she pursued and completed a Masters in Engineering with Naval Architecture from University of Southampton, shortly after kicking off a professional sailing career.

“Having now sailed around the world and poked in most corners of the ocean, taking off on both personal adventures and professional races, her love for sailing isn’t just about crossing the finish line, but the camaraderie of the crew, her love for marine environments and her desire to protect them. This is her story.”

A story on the Mustang Survival website said, “Maybe some of us really do have salt water in our blood.

“Case and point: Emily Nagel. Born and raised on the beaches of Bermuda, she spent her life on and in the water. At age 10, she was introduced to sailing. And the rest, she says, is history.

“From being a high performing competitor in the sport from the start to immersing herself in an education focused on Engineering and Naval Architecture, Emily’s let her passion lead the way – and it’s taken her incredibly far.

“Beyond distances and travelling all over the globe to competitively sail or work for teams taking on major challenges, Emily’s time on the water has brought her further from fear – finding her greatest sense of calm on the open ocean.

“The unpredictability is incredibly high – yet to find confidence outside her comfort zone may be one of the most incredible and important journeys she’s navigated during her time at sea. And, a lesson that transfers onto the shoreline, too.

“We’ll run into roller coasters all throughout life. Even when everything’s going wrong, there’s a way to find focus, some calm, and a sense of feeling at home in any, and every moment…when we let challenge be our teacher.”
