A dream come true? Sailing the world?

Is it a beautiful and worthwhile endeavor—this ocean sailing?  The excitement of slicing through the waves while beating to windward through a late season gale and the exhilaration of downwind sailing unexpectedly barreling down the wave faces at hull speed while offshore makes us realize that these are the exciting moments for us to grow. It’s definitely a challenge.

Sail and explore the world. From a different perspective, from sea level. We like to find new and unexplored places. And share this with anyone interested. We need you to show us the way. Share your local knowledge with us to find the real unknown gems. You can stay connected wherever we are through Facebook, Instagram, and email.


To be honest there is NO plan!
At least, we have no fixed plans. We do have a long bucket list and we do have a route in mind.
But if the wind brings us somewhere else than we thought we would go we don’t mind.
If the plan does not work we will change the plan not the goal!

The world has changed significantly since the beginning of March 2020. We were stuck in
St. Martin from March 10, 2020. We had a total lockdown of 2 weeks, curfews, #stayathome
situations but we survived! And finally half May 2020 Aruba was the first to “open”
with a 14-day quarantine, so we decided to go there. EIGHT was on the hard for hurricane season
and we came back October 5.2020. 
We gave EIGHT some TLC and sailed to Curacao. Now we are in Bonaire!
And no idea where we go next! Keep following via Insta and FB!

We left Holland on August 4, 2018. Crossed the Bay of Biscay.
Along the Spanish and Portuguese coast into the MED. Wintering in Licata, Sicily.
Summer 2019 sailing the Med and November 2019 we crossed the Atlantic to the Caribbean.
We will spend some more time in the Caribbean. We have not seen anything jet due to Covid.
After that, we like to go down to San Blas, Panama, crossing the Pacific Ocean. But we have only one chance.
Going there means no way back. We will see what life will bring us on this incredible adventure.
Encounter the world from a different perspective. From sea level!

 BUT: you can help us by sharing your local knowledge of the places we sail to! We try to keep up our
route on the website so you know where we hang out. Through email, Instagram, and Facebook
you can let us know where we can the true hidden gems of the places we visit.
If you have any tips for us on where to find the hidden gems,
where and what to eat and drink! Which interesting local cultural sites we should visit, where to do our shopping.
In return, we will show others what your idea or tip looks like!

Travelling. It leaves you speechless. Then turns you into a storyteller.

Writing is not my natural born talent and English is not my mother tongue.

Still I hope you will enjoy the written stories of all our adventures.
