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 08 - Sailing Toja on The Baltic Sea

June 4, 2017

Maik and Michelle sailed Toja 76 nautical miles in 16 hours from Rønne, Denmark to Karlskrona, Sweden in heavy wind and waves. For Michelle, it was her first long-distance, open-ocean voyage and her first bout of severe seasickness, which hit her about 10 minutes after capturing this video. The struggle is real!!! We had just hit open water after passing the wind shadow of the island of Rønne.

Extras 04 - Small Boats Make the Sailor

June 12, 2018

The Protagonist is our 15-foot, wooden catboat that we love to take on day sails from it's home port on Plash Island in Gulf Shores, AL. The big boats get the glory, but the small boats make the sailor, and this is especially true for The Protagonist. We will be sailing SEEFALKE, a 43-foot ketch, across the Atlantic this year from the Baltic Sea to Bon Secour Bay. Please SUBSCRIBE to our YouTube channel to follow our journey! We'd love to have you come along for the ride!
