“For us, it’s not just a job but a way of life. It is a chance to finally just shut your brain off and live within the moment. And for as long as we are able, we will sail until the day we die… “
We are a couple passionate about sailing and the ocean, nature, animals, people, love, compassion, and living life to the fullest. We are driven to inspire growth that goes hand in hand with change, to bring people together, create life-changing experiences and show humanity a side of life that has been forgotten by society. Sailing is the one thing where the love for all comes together and you get to experience the untouched hidden beauty of life.
We strive for professionalism but at the same time give a home-like feeling wherever we sail. It is not always the place that you call home but the people.
