The Pacific Ocean. The largest ocean in the world. An ocean of psychology and yet recognized as one of the most beautiful places on the globe. A cruise of more than 20,000 kilometres. Through 10 island kingdoms from the American's Caribbean, through the canal of the engineers past the adventurer's treasure island, Darwins' Galapagos, the bast skirt's Polynesia, the coral-beach-palm-island's Fiji, the whale's New Caledonia and the Cannibal's Vanuatu to the Dane Joern Utzon's opera in Sydney Harbour.

Half of the world's circumference, in the beauty and power of the nature. In good times and in bad times - and most of all in the realization of a dream.


1. October 2007 the journey starts out from Denmark flying to The Caribbean, where we will make the boat ready for 1 years of cruising. After preparation of the boat we will take a month in the Caribbean, before heading of through the Panama Canal to Coco Island, Galapagos, French Polynesia, Tahiti, Bora Bora, Cook Island, Tonga, Fiji, Vanuatu, New Caledonia and ends up in Australia September 2008, where the boat is to be sold again. A cruise across the worlds biggest ocean makes the journey exceeding 18.000 km ~ 10.000 Nautical Miles - almost half the way around the world!

Between Galapagos and Marquesas is 5.500 km ~ 3000 Nautical Miles, and is our longest trip at open water which is estimated to last 25 days. We expect the journey to give us some fantastic, extreme and unique experiences of any kind. This journey has been a dream for every crewmember for a long time.


We are four young guys, all in the late twenties. We met each other at Ollerup Academy Of Physical Education 2002. During the summer 2006 we decided to live out a dream - to sail across the Pacific Ocean. None of us are experienced sailors why this journey must be considered as a considerable challenge for any of the crewmembers.

Below you can read a short description of every crewmember.
