Extras 12 - First Gale During First Week at Sea

September 4, 2018

We set sail for our cross-Atlantic journey from Stralsund, Germany to Gulf Shores, Alabama and faced our first gale during the first week at sea. The Baltic Sea showed us her fury during a short, but signficant squall that produced 38-knot winds. SV Seefalke handled it great! This is just a snapshot of the storm, but you can watch the full video "Battling the Baltic" on our channel by following this link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0ztAH...

Extras 10 - Dogs in Flight - Crossing the Atlantic by Air

August 3, 2018

We were beyond relieved to have Cap’n Jack and Scout safely in Germany after a two-day trip from Gulf Shores. Big shout-outs of major thanks to the professionals at Lufthansa, Lufthansa Cargo, Pet Air Carrier, and especially our friends at Magnolia by the Gulf Animal Clinic for helping us make this happen.

Extras 09 - Sailors & Seadogs On the Water

June 28, 2018

Real-life adventures from Gulf Shores, Alabama to Stralsund, Germany. Maik and Michelle share their love of sailing, the sea, wildlife, our four fabulous kids, and our two Beagles, Cap’n Jack and Scout. Our fleet includes three unique sailboats. Seefalke is a 43-foot, steel-hull, Dutch-designed Ketch that we plan to sail across the Atlantic in 2018-2019. We logged most of our nautical miles on Toja - a 24-foot Flying Tramp that keeps us active on The Baltic Sea from her home port in Stralsund, Germany. We also have a cool little day-sailor, The Protagonist - a hand-crafted, 15-foot, wooden, open hull catboat that is moored at our home in Gulf Shores, Alabama.
