We are a small team of passionate, highly-experienced skippers with round the world sailing experience, in both racing and cruising.
Our team is formed by a network of sailors who know each other from decades. We have sailed together for thousands of miles, which is the only way to be a really close-knit team. Over the years, everyone of us has developed different specific experiences, all centered around the boat element. We love working together and, together, we can help customers with the most different needs and problems. We are independent but not exclusive, we work for companies and privates. We believe that working together gives the opportunity to keep learning while enjoying and that, together, 1+1=3. This is one among the many reasons that drives us, after more than twenty years, to keep working at sea, together.
