Our first miles are behind us. Ahead are thousands more, thousands of new places to visit and thousands of new people to meet. Traveling not only about visiting new places but, most importantly meeting new people.
Does the coronavirus impact on our plans? It's not known exactly yet, but we are preparing various options. The current option stands for Cape Verde to Suriname, then through French Guiana and Brazil to Patagonia. The previous option from Cape Verde to the Caribbean, Bermuda, USA, Bahamas, Cuba, and Mexico to Panama, is still valid, but only if ports in the Caribbean will get open. There is also a third option (in case our start from Las Palmas will have to be significantly delayed) from Cape Verde we will go straight to Brazil, skipping stop in Suriname, to be able to enter Chile at the beginning of their summer. How it will end up? We'll see.
She would go to the end of the world, but only in the tropic.
Most important is to aim ahead. Sailing should never end.
The Story So Far...
After years of sailing charter yachts on many seas, we bought Kate our first yacht Jeanneau 42.2. For nine years we sailed around the Mediterranean and North Atlantic. In 2016 we sold our Kate to buy a yacht that would be able to allow us to sail safely circumnavigate. In 2017 we bought an Oyster 485. It took us a year to modernize her. In July of 2018, we left Szczecin to set sails to the Canary Islands, where we planned a longer stay. In 2020 we will across the Atlantic Ocean towards the Caribbean Islands. The next legs include the Pacific and Indian Oceans. After returning to the Atlantic, we will sail to Brazil, Uruguay, and Argentina. Then, through the Beagle Canal, we’ll return to the Pacific. After that, there are no plans. There are also no plans as to how long the journey will last.
