  1. Hallo Rebecca und Christian,
    Hauke und Claudia sitzen gerade bei uns und jetzt habe ich es endlich mal geschafft eure Website aufzusuchen. Hinrich und ich haben den Segel und Moorbootführerschein letztes Jahr im Nachbarverein gemacht und segeln gelegentlich nun an der Möhne. Jetzt geht es an den Seesegelschein. Bis zur TRente haben wir es wohl geschafft :). Maurice segelt kaum noch – keiner mehr da für Optisegeln. Jetzt surft er mit Robby- eigentlich schade. Für Eure Weltumsegelung wünschen rwir weiterhin viel Erfolg.
    Liebe Grüße
    Hinrich und Katja

    1. Ahoy,
      Gut zu hören.. gratuliere. Schade dass ihr nicht mehr auf der Insel segelt.. klickt Mal auf den subscribe Button bei YouTube.. und erzählt das allen freunden..
      Seeschein.. sie an.. dann sehen wir uns ja bald auf dem Meer..
      Schöne Grüße..

  2. What is the name and group from the music on your videos? I saw “real / downline” and searched with no success.



    1. You won’t find it anywhere.. This song was written and produced by my brother during our ocean passage from Mexico to Hawaii..
      If you are interested in it I can contact my brother..

      1. I have enjoyed watching the voyages and will continue. You inspire me to learn to sail and I’m trying to develop a mental process of how it could happen in the next six years when my son graduates. My biggest challenge is convincing my wife. Any suggestions on reading material or etc?

        Yes, if you could see about talking to your brother as I would love to have a copy of his song and would pay you.

  3. You really make it appear really easy with your presentation however I in finding this matter to be actually one thing that
    I think I would never understand. It seems too complicated and very vast for me.
    I’m looking ahead to your subsequent submit, I will attempt to get the
    dangle of it!

  4. A+………have s great Hawaii Xmas.
    Do you want those pics of Zero on anchor at Blavkrock??

  6. By Chance I met Christian and Rebecca last night as I was about to board my boat. The chat we had along with my neighbor boat owner, David ,was most interesting. An entertaining close of my evening listening to stories by these World travelers. In their own right are adventurous free spirits living their passion..

  9. Hi there :) i am fairly new to sailing i have been learning for about 2 years now my other half has been teaching me we are currently in ontario and are building our boat to do the loop in about a year or two when we will also become liveabords with our 6 kids :) first time for me not a first for my other half. But i really enjoy following friends in there journeys and learning new things and exchanging ideas on others and love being able to meet new peapol who enjoy the same passion and life style we do :) so hope to hear from you guys and till then fair winds to you :)

    1. Good luck with your ongoing projects. It’s a hard time working on the boat and not beeing under way already. We know that.
      6 kids? What kind of boat do you build?

    2. 6 kids. Had to laugh. First time I spoke with my navel architect, describing what kind of boat I wanted he said he kept getting the picture in his head of the nursery rhyme of the old lady in the shoe with kids pouring out of every opening. I wanted a boat for kids too.

  10. You are living the dream some of us dream about. Happy and Fair sailings always. Gloria
