Hanse Sail 2014 (en)

The website of the Hanse Sail currently has a small article on us at the top of their front page. The article is about our beautiful and most faithful Marianne. But on the downside, this article is not on how amazing this lady has been, but more on her fitness, or better the lack thereof. If there’s something on the boat that’s not rusting, then it’s most definitely rotting away in some other way. That is exactly why the Office of the Hanse Sail has decided to help us out with … a fundraiser! “Let’s get ‘em home!” is the name of this kind initiative. With your help, we will be sure to make it home in one piece. And as a small thank you, your name will be shown on both the Hanse Sail and our own website and of course, the Hanse Sail office will gladly issue receipts for your donations. So here is the presse release of the Hanse Sail (translated). We hope you like (or better dislike) what you see … weiterlesen

Fishing boats on the deep sea – Calendar for 2013

For every seaman an encounter with another boat is always very special. How fast is their vessel and where is it going? Are we on a collision course with them? The twelve most beautiful pictures from the past 18 months are now available in our DINA4 calendar for hanging up on the wall. And by the way: It’s Christmas and such an original is great as a present!

Boworn Fashion House, Bangkok

This is the story of two sailors who went to the tailors. We brought Berlin’s Kopfsteinpflaster (cobblestone) to the streets of Bangkok. These beautiful suits will accompany us on our journey and will eventually walk the cobblestone streets of Berlin with us.

Thanks to the Boworn Fashion House for the location and thanks to Lincoln Davis for playing his song “Kopfsteinpflaster”!

You can order suits internationally at
bowornfashionhouse.com
They’ll pick you up from anywhere in Bangkok! Just call +662 234-2052-3

Fighting Thailand – First week in Hua Hin

This is a short summary of Thailand giving us a heartfelt welcome. We’re so happy to spend our first week with great musicians and lots of other perfect people!

After the charity concert where the most footage was shot we were incredibly lucky to meet the brilliant Thai-American musical composer and conductor S.P. Somtow with the very talented Youth Bangkok Orchestra. By the way, Somtow is also a science fiction, fantasy, and horror author!
Lincoln Davis then visited us on our sailing boat “Marianne” and didn’t feel too good when the wind started to pick up! So after one day of sailing we had to return to shore and instead recorded “All that I’m leaving here” on our balcony. Enjoy!

Peter processes the route tracking for us and you

Many thanks to Hamburg-based Peter who helped us intergrate our route trackings! This little tool enables us to update our current position everywhere on the open water via satellite telephone. Sweet!

He most certainly sails as well. Visit his websites sy-piano.de | bootschaft.net and leave him a post.
