First win for MAPFRE in Volvo Ocean Race:
Alicante, Spain (October 14, 2017) – The local heroes on Xabi Fernàndez’s MAPFRE were a popular winner when they won the first In-Port Race of the 2017-18 Volvo Ocean Race.
Fernàndez and his team made a bold call at the start to duck behind the entire fleet in order to sail up what turned out to be the favoured right hand side of the course, coming from behind to earn a narrow lead at the first gate.
“It was pretty clear from Joan (Vila) and Rob (Greenhalgh) that we wanted to hit the right side of the course in the first upwind looking for more breeze,” explained Fernàndez.

If you want to get back with your ex, you need to have a plan. If you expect to just go over to his/her place, and get on your knees and beg, and expect her to come back to you, then you definitely mistaken. In your ex’s eyes, that only makes you more pathetic since you can’t move on, or get over it, but your ex already has. You need to do what works, and just saying you’ve changed doesn’t. The only way to get her back what to do what got her in the first place, and I promise you it wasn’t begging her to go out with you on a first date, am I right?
All relationships have their fair share of problems. Even the best marriages have the strife within them. The real question is NOT how to not have bad days at all, but how you handle the few bad days when they come. Sometimes that particular bad day may end in breakup. However, that doesn’t mean that the relationship is over yet, you just need to remind of him/her of whatever brought you together in the first place.
Don’t act out of desperation. Really think about the problems in your relationship and address them as something that can be overcome. Always focus on rekindling the fire and chemistry that brought you together in the first place. If you have to, just say you’ll be friends, and then that way when you are out, and you connect with her at a deep level, and rekindle that attraction, your ex will wonder why he/she isn’t dating you anymore, when the connection and bond between you is so strong.
Here’s some other things you can focus on, that will help you get back together, by putting in the right mindset for reconciliation
– CALM DOWN – do NOT participate in text message terrorism. Drama and desperation will only worsen your situation. Show him/her that you can be strong, even if you are not, when going through this difficult time.
– Sometimes you can convince your ex to rekindle that fire with you, but NOT by begging her back. Ask him/her if he/she would like to try rekindling things with a few dates. No fights or arguments, just a few dates to see if there is anything still there.
– Find out what caused your ex to break-up, if you really don’t know, that’s okay too, but definitely brainstorm. There’s a reason why he/she broke up. If you think your relationship was perfect, think again.
– Find a way to communicate with your ex, and initiate contact. Sometimes he/she may try to avoid you, but you have to get through anyway you can with an apology. The best way is through a hand written 2nd chance letter.
In the end, moping around in your bedroom all depressed is NOT gonna help you bring any good in to your life, your ex, or otherwise. You need to be ready to put in some serious effort to make it happen, if you want to rekindle that lost love.
