Welcome on board

Ahoy, nice to see you. We – that is Jan, Vera and Kaatje – are the crew that sails around the world on Deep Blue.

Wind and current (and sometimes our faithful Yanmar) pull us westward on the Barefoot Route and we will anchor in bays, discover islands, enjoy the hospitality of foreign cultures, clear blue water with colorful fish and corals, endless summers on white beaches and a life free from hectic and timetables.

Three… Two… One… MINE

Tired… it is 6:53 am and we’ve been on the road for 1h already – direction east. We got up this morning at 4:30 because today is the day! No, we are not setting sail yet.  So I should say today is almost the day. Our destination for today is Ruegen, an Island in the…
