APPROACHING


ARRIVAL

The starting point of each section is accessible by low cost flights. Aside from Bravofly, and other centralized search engines, it is worth checking out the low-cost website for cheap deals. To Spain is often the cheapest to go with Vueling, but the Wizzair has also cheap deals. If you find cheaper ones you can share it with us and we will publish it.

SECTION STARTING POINTS:
Mallorca - Palma de Mallorca, La Lonja Marina Charter, the harbor is located in the city center. From the airport taking the bus 1, is approx. 50 minutes.

Gibraltar - La línea de la Concepción (the city on the Spanish side of the border), Alcaidesa Marina, the harbor is located in the city center. From the airport you have to walk across the border to the Spanish side and after a few hundred meters to the left you can reach the port.

FAQ

If you have any questions beyond this, feel free to contact me, either by email or phone.

Is the trip dangerous

There is a risk to all of this, but I feel it safer than the everyday's life. During navigation we are prepared against hazards, with instruments (radar, AIS), tools (storm sail, safety harness), and nautical knowledge. You can be hit in your head by a brick as you walk down the sidewalk or ... but I better to not list my crazy ideas. :) The point is, you can't prepare for all the dangers, or prevent them, while we are sailing. The other thing is that you can try it now safely because I will be with you, I've already sailed across the Atlantic, and the ocean is a friend of mine ;)

Seasickness

Not everyone has this problem, and not always. You can counteract it with food, drink non-alcoholic and non-carbonated drinks. To say the least, drinking Cola in a small sip and doing it is definitely good. The Chinese are chewing ginger. You can buy an acupressure bracelet. The earplug is also effective. And you can take medicine in Daedal, Stuger. I didn't really had seasickness yet, I've got something on Atlantic once, but I got a medication patch behind my ear, which works for three days, and then passed away, after which I didn't needed another patch.

Cancellation, refund of advance payment

Because when we book a ship, we also have to pay an advance, which we do not get back in case of cancellation, so we can only give you back in two cases: if you bring another passenger instead of you, alternatively, if we manage to fully recharge the ship's empty place with a passanger. If you want to be sure, you can buy cancellation insurance at the Mondial insurance for example.

Meal

When we are out on the sea for several days, we usually do shopping before departure and cook in the fully equipped kitchen of the ship. Of course, if somebody wants to have something for themselves, that can be done. It is also possible to discuss if someone is vegetarian, vegan, gluten or lactose sensitive. If we dock, we can cook or choose the delicacies of the restaurants.

What can a "weak" woman do on board?

Everything that men can do, because there is no weak woman, they are often stronger than men, even if not physically. ;) And anyway, sailboats are designed in a way that you don't have to use much power to handle them.

Can I go with a child?

Ofcourse. We had a five-year-old kid with us on our Atlantic crossing, and he was safe all along.
