2020 is the year of the corona crisis. The sailing season starts late – if at all. Corona puts people in the classic tourist countries in a difficult, even catastrophic situation.
Our yacht has been sold. The beautiful TELL, she is now moving to Turkey. Instead, we are now setting up a guesthouse in Viganj/Dalmatia, in one of our favourite sailing areas (Casa Nebeska, Peninsula of Peljesac, Viganj 138). Maybe it was just the right time. But we remain sailorsforfuture! After all, with the purchase of the Heavenly Houses we have now become proud owners of a rickety fishing boat.
Environmental and climate protection remain important concerns. On the Adriatic coast there is enough plastic waste to collect after the spring storms alone. And replacing old light bulbs in LEDs is not only a big job for us on board 😉 From now on, we are handling cistern water and generally try to keep our ecological footprint small.
We were really very happy about the Cruising Sailors‘ Prize of the German Sailors‘ Association 2020, which was not awarded to us – also by Corona – in Hamburg’s fine Speicherstadt, but was delivered to us quite profanely by mail. We also learned from other sailors that our example is followed everywhere. If that is true – that is the very best thing!
