Hitchsailing E-book

No boat, no budget and no real sailing experience but a dream to cross the Atlantic on a sailing boat, and the desire to make most meaningful mission out of it.

That was me 1,5 years ago. I decided to turn this dream into reality. So I looked for a sailing boat to cross the Atlantic. I found a boat. And left the boat just before sailing out. I found another boat. And after Caribbean exploration I found a boat back to Europe. Doing good along the way. This year, I’m doing it again. I help you do the same!

“If it can be dreamt, it can be done” – Walt Disney

Now I’m compiling my tips, my story and the stories of 50+ interviewed captains and hitch sailors into an ‘Hitchsailing across the Atlantic’ e-book.

With the book I like to inspire for adventure, help others making their dreams come true, and increase awareness about ocean conservation.


In the hitchsailing book I address questions like:

  • To do it or not?
  • How to even start an adventure like this?
  • What’s it like?
  • When to search and go?
  • How to find a boat?
  • What to expect?
  • What do captains expect?
  • What skills are useful?
  • How NOT to find a boat?
  • How do you know it’s safe?
  • How to prepare?
  • What to tell mum?
  • And how to make a meaningful mission out of it?

Cause I’ve also learned that our ocean needs attention. NOW.

With this book I want to help you make your dream come true, may you have the same dream. By helping you going on a sailing adventure like this you will see for yourself what’s happening to our ocean and will get the drive to act accordingly.

March 8 – April 8 I ran a crowdfunding to make the book happen! I’ve succesfully secured funds and are now working hard to get it finished a.s.a.p.

Can’t wait for the book to be finished?
