Es war der Knaller und wir waren dabei ! Die 43. Sint Maarten – Heineken-Regatta ist die größte Regatta in der Karibik und zugleich auch die wahrscheinlich größte Warmwasserregatta der Welt. Ich durfte als Bloggerin im Presse-Team dabei sein und auf dem Presseboot sensationell nah an den schnellen Yachten vorbeifahren und war mitten im Geschehen. Mit Greta von When Sailing auf dem Presseboot Torsten konnte mit dem holländischen Racing Team (Ocean Race VO65 Sprint Cup) am 3. Regatta-Tag mit segeln und sogar ans Steuer der gigantischen Yacht. Top speed über 20 Knoten, einmal um die Insel in 3 Stunden! Ein echtes Highlight …. Torsten am Steuer der Jajo Greta im Mast der Jajo Wir hatten so viel Spaß mit Greta und Michael von der ForTuna (Insta: When Sailing) und Ina und David von Kon-Tiki ! Wir haben zusammen gekocht, gefeiert und haben viel über das Leben auf einem Segelboot philosophiert. Frauen Power pur: Greta und Ina besegeln die Welt! Top Sushi Dinner, Dankeschön David und Ina WHAT A RIDE 🔥 Serious fun St. Maarten Heineken Regatta! Mit Jelmer und Team bei der Pressekonferenz This was a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for us to experience sailing on the VO65 ocean racer Teamjajo skippered by Jelmer van Beek 👌 Great young #OceanRace team of Jelmer and his powerful female team mix. Top speed over 20kts. Thank you for having us, you are fantastic ! Living „The Long Time Sailing Dream“ is a challenge. It's sometimes frustrating, sometimes infuriating. Sailing involves getting outside your comfort zone, taking chances, taking risks. It isn't always fun. It isn't always relaxing. But it is memorable, and very often life-changing. Winning team You make friends when you travel like we do, when you're thrown together with strangers in a strange land. You learn things about other cultures, and about [...]
The French Butterfly Island is a sailor’s paradise perfect for “la belle la vie”—the beautiful life. Guadeloupe is one of our top picks! Guadeloupe is one of the Eastern Caribbean’s Lesser Antilles islands. It is made up of six inhabited islands. The two main islands of Guadeloupe, Basse-Terre and Grande-Terre, look like the wings of a butterfly from above. While Guadeloupe is popular among French tourists (I mean, it IS a French island), it’s a little less known to North Americans. What makes the island unique is its overwhelming and undisturbed natural beauty. Unlike many Caribbean islands, it is not plastered with huge capacity resorts. It’s tropical, volcanic, French-style, and off the beaten path! Basse-Terre is mountainous, volcanic, and has lots of places to go hiking and waterfall chasing. This is where you’ll find the Guadeloupe National Park, and protected marine areas that are fantastic for diving, like Reserve Cousteau. Chocolate and coffee are also produced in Basse-Terre. Chute du Carbet The Carbet Waterfalls are a series of three cascading waterfalls on the lower slopes of the volcano, La Soufriere. Bouillante Anchorage : Bouillante, Basse-Terre, in front of the natural thermal springs heated by volcanic activity !!! The temperature can reach 80°, fortunatelly the waves refresh the temperature of the hot spring. You can spot Iguanas on the beach, in the trees, on the rocks, in the gardens…. Grande-Terre – which despite its name (meaning 'big land') is far smaller than Basse-Terre. Its south coast, with reef-protected waters and golden-sand beaches, is the country's main resort area. By comparison, the eastern side of the island is barely touched by tourism: it's largely open to the Atlantic's waves, and instead of beaches has crashing surf off much of its rocky coastline. It is popular with surfers, however, who converge on the [...]
