MY BOAT & NEW HOME
The most essential thing to start a sailing trip is most likely a sailing boat. My new home is a Reinke Super 10 that I call KARL. He is a tough boy, sturdy as a tank and I love him with all my heart. Even if our first encounter in Panama, the following months refitting him and the first troublesome trial runs have been a rough time for me, I would not change him for any other boat.
KARL is derived from the old German word “karal” which means “husband” but also “the free one” – the perfect partner for me to sail the world. With his 11,20m length he provides a lot of room for me and up to three guests. He has surely not been built for racing, but with his twin keels and therefore little draft, we can enter into many shallow bays and rivers.
