One Year and 16,000 Miles on a 44 Foot Sailing YachtStefan & Natascha

This is the story of sailing yacht Espiritu and her crew Natascha and Stefan Verweij during a one year journey from Singapore to The Netherlands that started 31st July 2004.

We are excited to share with you our adventures on the oceans, of tropical islands with beautiful beaches and romantic sunsets. However, we won’t withhold you from possible bad experiences such as storms, calms, tiring night watches and accidental gybes.

From Singapore we'll set sail towards Indonesia and after rounding Sumatra enter the South Indian Ocean. We’ll visit Cocos Keeling, Seychelles, Comoros and Madagascar before setting sail towards the challaging hurdle of Cape Hope in South Africa.

After rounding Cape Hope, we'll cross the Atlantic. This passage is close to 6,000 miles to reach the Caribbean with a stop at St. Helena and Brazil. We plan to stay quite some time in the Caribbean and the British Virgin Islands. Via Bermuda and the Azores, we'll finally arrive in the North Sea and head to the port of Scheveningen in The Netherlands.

Yacht Vision Magazine
One ship drives east, and another west
With the self-same winds that blow;
It is the set of the sails
And not the gales,
That decides the way to go.

Like the winds of the sea are the ways of fate,
As they voyage along through life;
It is the will of the soul
That decides its goal,
And not the calm or the strife.
