It all started when...
my parents bought our first sail boat in the mid 70´s. Our boat was based near to Amsterdam, just a 2 hour ride from my hometown in Germany. During the season we used to spend nearly every weekend on our boat, in the summer holidays we did a lot of long distance cruising. Our sailing trips took us the Baltic Sea (Danemark, Germany), the English Channel Coats (Netherland, England, Belgium, France), the Channel Islands down to the Biscay. In the late 80´s we decided to move our sail boat to the Mediterranean, where we sailed a lot at the France Riviera. From 2010 until 2016 our homeport was Barcelona. I felt in love with this gorgeous city and i decided to leave Germany to live in Barcelona, to say bye bye to my job in the event management business and to start a new chapter of my life.
With the experience in sailing since my early childhood, studing 4 years in a seaman school, working on commercial cargo vessels, which took me to The U.S. East Coasts, Brasil and Argentina, i decided to become a professional sailor.
In 2014 i did my Commerical Yachtmaster Lisence and started my first job as skipper on a fantastic Classic 71´ sail boat from 1928, which was based in Ibiza.
In 2015 i went back to Barcelona to work on a very fast race sail boat, doing day and sunset trips. During this 2 years i collected so many very valuable experiences in the charter business with many hundred´s on happy customers from all over the world.
All these nice experiences made me realize:
I have found my destiny!
Now, end of 2016 i have started to life my dream - offering sailing trips with my own sail boat in Ibiza.
But why Ibiza?
I totaly felt in love (again) with this super special and beautiful tiny island. For sailors Ibiza is a paradise! Especially if you offer sailing trips with more or less non sailing customers. The weather contidions are very easy, seasickness is not a big thing, because the sea is always very flat. In Ibiza you find so many mindblowing bays, perfect for anchor, swimming and snokeling in cristal clear and warm water. I really love to share this unique experience with other people and it makes me so happy to see that big smile in their faces, realizing that the simple things in life are mostly the bests.
