THROWBACK: Part 3/4 “Crossing the Atlantic”

THROWBACK: Part 3/4 “Crossing the Atlantic – It’s really happening!”

21 Days of water following up more water. Prepared for (hopefully) everything, we aim eastwards. Our wet sailing dream does however not always go as smooth as planned. The weather chart system malfunctioned, and the boat not as waterproof as we hoped. Creativity shapes the solution for wheather forecasts, inboard waterfalls and (fresh) food scarcity. Watch this and sail along on our trip from Canada to France!

THROWBACK: Part 2/4 “Crossing the Atlantic – Canada”

pfeeewww! First real miles eastwards away from the US of A. With butterflies in our tummy and salt everywhere you can imagine, we fly towards Lunenburg, Canada. This will be the last bit of civilized land before the big blue will surround us. Last place where we can walk around, drink cold beer, eat fresh food and shower. Hopefully our preparations are sufficient, and hurricane warnings are untrue. We smell you Europe, although you are far far away! All alone for weeks.. or months, who will tell? It seems like our fellow fast swimming mammals are trying to tell us something, or are they just playing along?

THROWBACK: Part 1/4 “Crossing the Atlantic”

Here they go, on a one way flight to boston and from there they drove 7 hours north to Castine, Maine (USA) to sail a boat that they have never seen before to Amsterdam. A long time ago the dutch lost this historical town to the British, now we are back and stronger than ever. This five men army conquered this aluminum ocean race sailing boat, their version of the “American dream”. In two weeks the boat needs to be made ready to cross the Atlantic ocean to Europe, before hurricane season starts.
