In May 2017 we are leaving our careers and in the spirit of freedom and adventure setting off on our 46’ yacht ‘Tranquilo’ to sail over 20,000 nautical miles – 37,000 km – around the world.
We will pick up the yacht in Europe and spend five months cruising the Mediterranean before heading across to the Canary Islands. As part of the Atlantic Rally for Cruisers (ARC) we will cross the Atlantic and sail around the Caribbean, including the Windward and British Virgin Islands. Crossing the Panama Canal we will enter the Pacific Ocean and join the Coconut Milk run, island hopping our way to the Galapagos, across French Polynesia, then onto Fiji, Vanuatu and New Caledonia, and Australia. And from there? Who knows!
