Sailing trips to the world's most off-the-map places
There are the hidden gems on Earth. To reach them, we’ve chosen a special yacht that can sail at any latitude, no matter the weather. [And changed everything on her.]
The Yacht: Perola do Mar [Dudley Dix Hout Bay 50]
Length 50+10 ft, steel hull, 2 masts, 5 sails, 5 cabins (10 berths per boat), equipped for the Arctic

Season 1: winter 2023 [completed]
On our way to Atlantic Ocean, we gradually xplored the Mediterranean off-season, traveled from Marmaris, Turkey to Barcelona, Spain.
Season 2: spring 2023 [completed]
This time we explored Balearic islands and south coasts of Spain, then passed the Gibraltar strait, traveled through all Portugal, and finished the season in Vigo.
Each stage is graded on a ‘buff’ scale (🌊). The buff indicates the level of difficulty on the way, scaling from 1 buff – 'very easy' to 5 buffs – 'very hard'.
What’s included in the price of the stage?
Accommodation, clean linens, fuel for dinghy. [And, above it, great people to travel with.] Food, diesel costs, and marinas are extras (~200-300 EUR per week per person overall).
