August 19, 2019
It’s been exactly one year since we set sail from Stralsund, Germany on August 19, 2018 for our worldwide sailing voyage. We have sailed more than 7,000 nautical miles so far in the past 365 days with many more destinations in our sights, including Gulf Shores, Alabama, USA. We asked our social media followers to send us questions to answer about our voyage so that we could create this one-year anniversary video just for you. It’s a long video, so here are the topics with time stamps in case you want to skip around to the topics that interest you the most.
Thanks for hanging in there with us all this time! We had so much FUN making this video for you!
