It starts at 3.30am. Suddenly thousands of little fisherboats spread out to cast their fishing nets in the gray of dawn. Wildly gesticulating, they point to their nets which are pretty much everywhere and thus force us to sail slalom.
Today our dinghi’s outboard engine did not want to re-start after an involuntary seawater shower. Unfortunately, help could not be found on the main land despite Yvonne’s female charm. So we had to “borrow” a couple of paddles from the locals fisherboats… After a debilitating 20-minute paddling session we could make it back to Marianne. We’ll bring the paddles back tomorrow! Promise!
On these pages you’ll find all the funny and mad stories sailors like to tell. Further, you’ll get more information on artists, our boat “Marianne” and our journey, as well as current locations. And certainly we’ll pitch lots of tales about seamen.
