Safety at Sea

There are numerous books written about round about sailing voyages around the globe and many contain excellent preparation tips & advice. Last week I read two books written by Dutch guys who both prepared for the worst & hoped for the best and accomplished their dreams without loss of limbs & life. They scared the crap out of me though and made me wonder if we had to put more effort in the first part of our journey. Researchers added extra load to my feeling of unease, letting us know that global warming would probably tenfold the chance of sinking our plans in the years to come.

In this blog entry we journal our attempt to have fun conquering the oceans and staying alive in the process. We would like you to help us by reading & adding comments to correct or advice us. I know, we ask a lot, thank you in advance. We will try to reward your effort with great stories and images of our tour around the world.
