Looking For Aluminium / Steel Sailing Yacht

Posted on

Two ladies are not happy right now, their search for an aluminium / steel sailing yacht is going round in circles. They sold their previous boat, Luna, a reliable and very well maintained Van de Stadt Orca, because they wanted to sail a slightly larger yacht. However, with their future destinations and general requirements in mind this is a bit tricky, seemingly. The Past: Scotland, North Norway, Shetlands, White Sea, Franz-Josef-Land, Greenland In the past, […]

Zero Emission Sailing Around The World

Posted on

What a trip! Sailing around the world is one thing, nothing unusual for a couple of young chaps. The more than amazing element is that their sailing boat has not used a single drop of fuel. They were running on zero emission. Including cruising the 40 nautical miles along the Panama Canal. How did they do it? The four guys from the Eco Sailing Project first had an idea, which turned into a plan, which […]

Sailing Boat: Motor Or Not

Posted on

After having read yet another great article by Viki Moore (Astrolabe Sailing) I could not stop thinking about a topic that had been at the back of my mind for quite a while: “motor or not” on a sailing yacht. Lin & Larry Pardey have sailed around the world without one. Bastian Hauck on his folkboat Tadorna has completed his second half of the tour around the Baltic Sea without one. And the 12mR s/v […]

Nothing But Fun Sailing A Dehler 31

Posted on

On a sunny afternoon in May 2014 it got a little crowded in a Dehler 31’s cockpit. That was, however, exactly what we had in mind. It was the start of a wonderful sailing week in the Danish South Sea. The idea was quite simple: Two days of getting to know the boat, family sailing and relaxing on the water.
