Join in on our last long leg on our Round Atlantic trip 2020 to 2021. This is home run for the boat and the beginning of a new summer period in the north, in other words, perfect time to go cruising. We have already done this trip on our way south but normally its easier […]

Sebastian 08 Jan , 2020 0 Comments

This is the second leg of our transatlantic crossing East to West. It has it’s own special features when getting into more northern latitudes. The trick is to leave Horta and go after a passing low pressure and try not to get hit by the next one coming behind you. Low’s tend to be cyclic […]

This is the trip of your life. The southern trade wind routes have very little to do with the northern route back to Europe and you can prepare to meet the wild forces of the nature. We have done it many times and every single trip jumps out of the script to become something of […]

Cherbourg to Lissabon is a epic stretch including rounding the Ushant, passing the Cap Finisterre and crossing the Bay of Biscay, lots of dramatic and historic landmarks for seafarers since centuries.
