Live Your Dream. Sail around the world.

How to Sail Around the World

There’s lots of ways to sail around the world. If you’re racing, you often use storms in the southern ocean to propel you along. It’s a completely different approach. One that requires serious boats that are built for those conditions. We on the other hand sail around the world by staying more or less in the trade wind belts. This stacks the odds in our favour. We often have the wind and waves behind, pushing us along and stay warm in the non-stop tropical conditions. Although it may seem crazy to sail around the world, it’s not once you analyze the various wind patterns and hurricane seasons. With a bit of planning it’s quite reasonable for anyone with a sense of adventure to do the same. 

Be bold. Be Brave.

Pirate or fisherman?

Altruism and Risk. The two go hand in hand. Over the years we have sailed into some of the most remote regions. We’ve anchored in front of some of the poorest villages. Not once have we encountered situations where someone has harmed us. This is not a coincidence. The world is filled with people who […]
