We left La Palma two and a half weeks ago to continue our journey over the ocean to the Caribbean.
The wind is carrying us steadily more and more west, and as the miles pass everything get’s more and more into a nice and steady rhythm. The waves, the days and nights and the crew.

Immer gleiche Tage mit den immergleichen Abläufen und Routinen, die doch jeder […]
