For a while I have been following this YouTube channel Cep Hikayeleri that publishes an interesting video each week about extraordinary lives of people whom we don’t take notice of in our daily lives. Recently they made a video about my story, crossing the Atlantic Ocean by hitchhiking a sailing boat.
We get many questions about our 2850 nautical miles long Atlantic Ocean crossing which started from Las Palmas, took 21 days and ended in Antigua and Barbuda. “How were your days passing on the boat?”, “What were you doing on the boat?”, “What did you eat and drink?”, “What did you cook?”, “Did you catch many fishes?”, and so on. So I decided to share my experiences about our daily life experience on the boat which also answers a lot of these questions
Previously I shared some posts about my experience about the Atlantic Crossing, using a sailing boat. I decided I should write an article about some other part of that wonderful trip, about how to hitchhike a sailing boat! 🙂
You can read my previous articles about different parts of my Atlantic Crossing story at the bottom of this post. So, here we go, hitchhiking a sailing boat, from memoirs of Senem Tongar!
Previously I wrote an article about the Best Parts of Life On A Sailing Boat. Today I want to share another article with you about the other side of the coin. I hope it will be useful for you.
Antigua and Barbuda is one of the most beautiful islands in the Caribbean Sea. Last year after the Atlantic crossing we spend a few days there. I wrote about how it felt to see Antigua after a long and exhausting sailing trip in this post yesterday and decided to write more about Antigua itself today.
Uniting with Nature
Feeling the wind that touches every part of your body, waves shaking you, sleeping under the stars, seeing different shaped clouds and shining Planktons under the sea during the nights, watching the flying fishes in the sea and the races of dolphins are just some of the best things you will witness during your sailing trip. All these things make you think of the greatness of the mother-nature.
I decided to share our experience of crossing the Atlantic so I will try to give detailed information about how to cross the Atlantic ocean on a sailing boat and our journey and answer the most frequently asked questions that people throw at us all the time.
