2 years on route, and many more to come

Imagine yourself being 30. Engaged, yay <3! Planning your wedding, saving up to realize that dreamwedding. And then… one evening, sitting on the sofa together, you start discussing that long-lasting dream of buying a sailboat and sailing the world. It never seemed possible, but then, with the wedding-savings-mind set in place, it did!

So we postponed the wedding, started looking for boats, bought an awesome (but quite a handfull of work) 44ft Van de Stadt and refitted her from top to bottom. And now, we are not only with two but with three on board in the Caribbean!

We are running to the front of the boat when a group of the most magnificent fishes are swimming by. Friends of us already jumped in their dinghy and are swimming next to them.

Going to Bonaire, or aren’t we?

While rocking and dancing on the waves, we pass the lighthouse of Curacao. A moderate breeze is healing Yndeleau and we tack every half hour to stay as close to Curacao as possible. We left 2 hours later than planned because we had to do ‘just a few things’ before...
