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 many years of sailing on chartered yachts in different parts of the world, I bought our first (old) Kate - yacht Jeanneau 42.2. We have sailed in the Mediterranean and the North Atlantic for nine years. In 2016, I sold Kate to buy a vessel that could safely travel worldwide.
In 2017, I bought an Oyster 485. The renovation and modernization of the yacht took over a year. In July 2018, we left Szczecin to set sail to the Canary Islands, where we planned a more extended stay.
On January 1, 2021, we crossed the Atlantic Ocean to Carabien Islands, visiting: Martinique, St. Martin, and the Dominican Republic. We spent the hurricane season 21/22 in the US, starting in Florida to end up in Chesapeake Bay.
On February 5, 2022, we set off from Annapolis to the Bahamas. We waited two weeks in Norfolk for the weather window. The Gulf Stream at this time of the year must be carefully planned. After five days of sailing, we found ourselves in the Bahamas' paradise.
On May 5, 2022, we docked in Port Antonio, Jamaica.
On June 20, 2022, we arrived in Cartagena and spent nearly four months in Columbia.
We are now sailing on the beautiful waters of San BlasBlas islands, communing with the Guna Yala Indians. We plan to cross the Panama Canal in December.
