I started my sailing career in 1986 on a yourney from Mallorca to Gran Canaria. Since then I sailed mostly in the Baltic, some years on an own boat, some years as a skipper on an larger yacht owned by a sailing club. Occasionally I also skippered chartered boats in the Mediterranian. In June and July 2019 I took part in a voyage from Greece to Germany: abt. 4000 miles on a Dufour 45. Since this was not a recreational tour we sailed mostly several days and nights before seeing the next harbour. It is this experience that I enjoyed most. Now I am ready for an Ocean Crossing.
