soon starting another Atlantic Crossing

Wow, time flies and it is already a year since we have crossed the Atlantic Ocean for the first time…

Now time to do it  once again (actually already a third time 🙂

We are starting  from Las Palmas in Gran Canaria and estimate 20 days until reaching Martinique. Hopefully this year we have time to explore Barbadoss 🙂

Check out how it was last year and wish us luck 🙂

Atlantic Crossing from BVI to Azores

Survived!!!!

AGAIN we have crossed the Atlantic Ocean 🙂 this time in 19 days from British Virgin Islands to Azores. We made 2480nM and it was a bit more challanging then a previouse one. All safe and good.

Now sightseeing the Azores 🙂 simply lovely… we just miss some Caribbean sun…

Please say hello to our new friend: Cool Whale, who was flirting with our pretty Beneteau 50 🙂

Atlantic Ocean Crossing 2016 movie :)

I have promised to prepare the movie from the Atlantic Passage. It took me a while and was a bit of challenge to do 4 minutes movie from 4 weeks of trip, but I hope that you will feel at least a part of the excitement we had during this outstanding cruise.
Amazing people, great atmosphere, safety and very professional preparation. Simple life, highlighting beauty of no civilization.
Please share your opinion with me and of course the movie if you like it
Many great thanks to Captain Jasiek, OrtemSails and rest of the crew for this unforgettable cross.

Las Palmas to Caribbean

After few days in Canary Island and getting to know my Captain: Jasiek and his boat we are almost ready to start our sailing on Atlantic Ocean to Caribbean. It is even hard to imagine this journey as we will spend around 18 days with absolutely no ground under feet. Ocean everywhere. Day and night. Crazy but also fascinating. Just think about the sky in the middle of Atlantic Ocean. How many shooting stars will I see. How many fresh fishes we will eat and how good I will become  in being in such extreme environment. There are no external „disturbers“. No internet, no phone, no traffic lights, no lines in the shop, nothing. Only me, just a little bit of water and calmness. Breath in, breath out, enjoy, relax, take it easy. Enjoy nature, free time, long conversation with other crew members. Learn life from the best possible way.
(Jachtostop): I am hitchhiking on Jasiek`s great Piligrim boat. Jasiek is an owner of amazing cruising company: Ortem Sails (www.ortemsails.pl) and is organizing sailing adventures all around the globe.
I am very happy to have a chance to sail with him and learn from the bests.
