After our first transocean across the Atlantic, we brought a Fountaine Pajot Marquises 56 for Dream Yacht Charter from the Seychelles to Phuket. We had about 3000 nautical miles to go when we started from the main island of Mahe. Equipped with enough diesel, the route ran directly east over the Chagos Islands before we turned north a good 700 miles before Sumatra. As expected, we could not sail the entire route in these latitudes. However, the first week in particular brought us wonderful wind from the side, which catapulted the catamaran quickly…continue reading →
Malaysia

Malaysia

From Phuket to Langkawi via DYC - that was the main axis for our transfers of brand-new lagoons in the area in front of the busy Malacca Strait. We sailed the almost 300 nautical miles there and back short-handed with short anchor stops in front of the paradisiacal islands.continue reading →
Maledives

Maledives

We bridged the time in the Indian Ocean sensibly and trained ourselves in water sports. Where else, if not on the Maldivian islands, can you collect diving licenses in one of the best diving areas in the world? We thought so too and without further ado we booked the first diving course in a series of certificates at 'Ocean Junkies'. Later in Thailand we rounded off the PADI Scuba Diver with the SSI Open Water Diver, so that we are now entitled to rent diving equipment and start dives up to 12m without…continue reading →
Seychelles

Seychelles

Close to the equator in front of Africa is the beautiful area of the Seychelles. For JTC we went from Praslin to the diving paradise over the Christmas holidays. In a week of sailing we saw picturesque bays and the concentrated beauty of the underwater world - even without diving equipment. Stingrays can already be seen in the harbor and along the way there are lots of reef sharks, manta rays and turtles. One week is enough to be able to enjoy the island world including extensive bathing sessions. Insider tips: Take a…continue reading →
Andaman Sea

Andaman Sea

With the start of the local winter we were drawn to the Far East in the Andaman Sea. The plan was 50 days (5 crews of 10 days each) sailing in the area on the eastern side of Phuket. The area is not exactly known for prestigious regattas, for good reasons. In terms of wind technology, there is usually nothing to little going on there during the main season. The northeast monsoon blows only moderately and only supports local gusty winds. But every now and then brings small rainy areas, so-called squalls, with…continue reading →
Tyrrhenian sea

Tyrrhenian sea

This September, we booked two charter weeks for our clients for one of the most beautiful areas in the Mediterranean, not one week as usual. And if you look at the size of the area, the time is admittedly set too short. However, the few impressions of the bays and harbors are always sufficient to definitely return there. A double charter from Portofino is ideally suited to get to Sardinia and back over the coasts of Elba and Corsica and without having to stick miles. The Sun Odyssey 449 took us to places…continue reading →
Baltic Cruising

Baltic Cruising

This year's summer trip took us northeast towards Stockholm. In a good 2 weeks we had explored a lot of for us unknown ports with mostly changeable weather with sunny and aft windy passages. Our route from Kiel took us via Warnemünde, Bornholm, Gotland to the Smâland archipelago. Noteworthy stops were without a doubt Visby on Gotland, various locations in Kalmarsund and Allinge on Bornholm. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8r2U0TiSf1E [/ embed]continue reading →
12mR Trophy

12mR Trophy

Immediately after the Kiel Week, we sailed the Kiel races of the 12mr Trophy on the 'Flica II' we supervised. The regatta, which is only a milestone on the way to the 2019 World Cup in Newport, was well organized and had strong wind conditions in the truest sense of the word. 11 of the classic yachts from all over the world (including New Zealand & Australia) took part in the event and not only collected points for the coming year in New York, but also important experience.continue reading →
Kiel Week 2018

Kiel Week 2018

As every year, there is a lot to do on the water during Kiel Week, with the small difference that we did not take part in regattas, but rather sailed the fjord in cruising mode. With the 'Prima' from Futura-Yachtsystems we took a little break and marveled at the races up close. In choppy seas, we enjoyed the comfortable properties of the variable-width catamaran - best maneuverability without leaning. And by the way, thanks to its lightweight construction (carbon processing), we were able to drive the ship with many racers up to 15kt…continue reading →
Delivery to Helsinki

Delivery to Helsinki

A Dufour 38 Classic has not only changed its owner, but also its home port. We therefore transferred the solid cruiser equipped with new electrics and brand new sails 'quick and dirty' from Kiel-Schilksee to the capital of Finland, where the new owner and his family were already waiting for us enthusiastically. Because for them the ship went straight to the several weeks of summer vacation. Good winds and a two-person professional support from our network made it possible to cover approx. 700 nm non-stop with the cruiser in 5 days and nights.continue reading →
