Slowing down, living in the “now”. This is a journey or self realization towards our responsibility to protect nature..
Sailing in all conditions and exploring some of the remotest areas on Earth. By challenging ourselves everyday we feel alive and it makes us stronger..
We witness the most stunning wildlife while spreading awareness about the need of creating marine protected areas worldwide.
We are tied to the ocean
To create and share our own lifestyle, to explore the beauty of our planet, to challenge ourselves and others, to live sustainably and in harmony with nature, to engage with likeminded people and friends while spreading the word about the importance of protecting our oceans worldwide
Passion , dedication and experience. We are two enthusiastic professional sailors with an extensive experience and knowledge about nature. We have been working hard to achieve a common life dream and now, it finally came true: having our own sail boat and create our own adventure
