Learning to Sail, on an adventure!

Ever since we first tried sailing, going from Italy to Greece and back to Italy, a new idea of using a boat to get around was born. We love using the wind and the freedom that sailing gives you. On the sea, you can go anywhere in the world!!

This is Lars in his Hobie next to Jean Jacques boat, back when we did our tour from Copenhagen to Istanbul.

So this summer together with boat-owner Jean Jacques and his good friend Philippe Clement both from France and people we consider our friends, will we sail over 2000 nautical miles in the Mediterranean Sea, and learn to sail a sailing boat. Plus their friend on another boat ‘KALYMNOS’ is coming with us as well.

Here is Marc on his boat Kalymnos with a little friend in the first days of the adventure.

The ideer came suddenly, one day I was writing to Philippe and told him about our plans for the summer. Staying home for most of the time but spending a week our two in Greece, having a look at old silver mines together with Vasilis.

I then wrote another mail to Philippe in fun; Phillipe why don’t we sail together from France to Greece look at the mines and then go back…

…Two hours later the adventure was planned!! It is dangerous being surrounded by adventurous people. 😃

Next to Tiuri is Jean Jacques and at the end of the table is Philippe, this is from inside JJ’s boat. This picture was also taken on our kayak adventure to Istanbul.

Plans never works out completely like planned but Lars is going to Procida in Italy and will sail with JJ and Philippe to Greece. Then Philippe goes home and Suzi and the kids are coming on board the boat to sail back to Marseilles in France.

 

The idea is to have a great time and learn to sail!!
