“The brave may not live forever – but the cautious do not live at all”


Nr 107. Sailing for 2 years: 24x in the media

We have been happy sailing now for 2 years on this day 1. Mai 2023! Since we left on 1.Mai 2021, we sailed over 8.000 miles on the West-European coast. This has been our route so far:

During the 2 years, we kept family, friends and business relations updated via these 2 channels:

  1. Catamaranhorizon.com: our website where I have been writing a blog every week, so 106 blogs in 2 years. And we have had close to 15.000 visitors on our website during those 2 years!

2. YouTube Catamaranhorizon: we have posted 55 video’s, often filmed with our drone while sailing, seeing dolphins on the way, showing the villages we visited, filming adventures like the helicopter practice while sailing Scotland and showing the beautiful surroundings we have seen.

Via these 2 channels we share our experiences with living and working during our worldtour sailing.

We also got noticed by others and they contact us to write about our worldtour, or send us a request to make podcasts or ask for an interview for a magazine. Mostly by Dutch parties, but also English, French, Norwegian and Belgians found us. They can be divided in 3 categories:

A. Sailing related organisations
B. Trainers and Advisors in Learning & Development
C. Digital Nomads (working and travelling)

We have collected all their contributions about us in the media for the last 2 years in this blog, in order of the categories A, B or C (see above). It turned out that on average every month during the last 2 years, we were contacted to do an interview or podcast.

So with these 24 contributions below, we hope you enjoy this overview on how we have experienced our live on catamaran Horizon so far, seen by others!
