Captain T.

I learned to sail at nine years old in Nieuwpoort, Belgium, in an optimist at 'sailing-camp'. In the years that followed I learned sailing bigger boats. From my puberty till the summer of 2015 I 'forgot' about sailing.

It was then on holiday on a Mexican beach I decided (probably it were the Bloody Mary's speaking) to sail around the world. From that moment on everything had to with sailling: finding a propper boat, taking lessons again how to sail a bigger boat, getting it prepped. We then 'lost' 1,5 year because we (my ex-wife & me) bought a boat that was in such pour state, we underestimated the work, so after my divorce I've put her on the market and got rid of that moneypit.

In August of 2017 I bought HER, I bought the boat where I had secretly a crush on since many years; A Hallberg Rassy. I gave her the same name as our previous boat (please forgive me Neptune) 'Saudade'. 

 

Something changed within me the last year (2017), I remember feeling frustrated by the direction the world seemed headed. 

Our distance and apathy for the natural world and failure as a country to seek and promote environmentally sustainable living left me disappointed and frustrated. 

I started living my own life with less stuff and became a minimalist in everything that I could. I got rid of everything I didn't use the past last months and starting to liveaboard. After stop eating fish, I soon became a vegetarian and not long after that a vegan, for a smaller foothprint and for the great love I have for animals. 

I’ve discovered that the most important sort of exploration happens within. The enormous sense of fulfillment I’ve gained from following my dream, delving into self-awareness, and living a simple life close to nature motivates me to continue sharing my experiences in hopes of the same for others.

WE ARE ONE! Nature, humanity, and all life on Earth are inextricably and fantastically connected. Seeking to understand and participate in this Greatness is not only a path to immense personal fulfillment, but also to healthy, peaceful planet and a populace that could exist in harmony with nature!
