L1090082skærgaarden 097Hi, I’m a retired executive from Parker Hannifin and Vinni is a retired executive from the public sector (CEO of major public hospitals).  We’re sailing the Baltic at the moment and will be starting a circumnavigation in spring 2016.

Join us and stay in touch as we live out our adventures

In May 2016 we sold our house, cars etc etc and set off around the world. It is a great feeling – it is just like being 20 years old again – we own nothing except the boat and we have no responsibilities or obligations except to each other.  Since we have sold everything, we have no fixed plans. We expect our circumnavigation to last 7-8 years but if it takes more than that – so be it.

  1. Hi – I noticed that you signed up for ARC in 2016. Are you looking for a crew for that journey? I’m a Dane living in California (since 2000), I used to sail when I was younger in a OE 32 (my dad’s boat). I’m getting back into sailing, haven’t yet bought a boat but looking and trying to persuade my family at the same time. I’m looking at Jeanneau’s as well…….anyway, let me know if you’re considering crew for ARC and I’ll tell you more about myself.

  2. When I think about your journey ahead, I think about this quote by Mark Twain (though experts say he is probably not the author):

    Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.

    I look forward to your updates. May you have fair winds and following seas.

    Best wishes from


  3. Hi folks, Hope you got away from Crosshaven and are sailing. Carsten can you please do me a favour when you have a chance. Would it be possible to send me the model number for the Out Back controller. Also the model number and dimensions of your Sunpower panels. I would be grateful if you can give me the number of batteries you have and how they are set up between 12 and 24 volts …

  4. It was my pleasure meeting you both. Thank you for your knowledge, kindness and delightful spirits. Fare winds and following seas, till we meet again!
