Dear Shipmates


Traveling was a big portion of my professional life. I do like to see new places, connect with different cultures, eat unknown food etc…

Sailing means for me traveling powered by the wind… exploring the world from the waterside….

As a person I am calm, tolerant and respectful. I love good food and I love to cook, too. I am personally a “flexitarian” I respect vegetarian kitchen, but I am personally unexperienced in preparing vegan food… So if you are vegan - you are heartily welcome but you have to teach me….

In a nice company I like to to drink a bit but I do not like to be drunken or having drunken people on board. If crew on board does not want to drink and asks not to drink at all: this in no problem for me…

I am a fairly good swimmer, I like to snorkel, just had my first 4 days training in freediving and I am open for cycling if there are somewhere rental bike available. I also like Yoga and meditation. My level of sportiness is pretty above average… Other sports I do is Mountainbike and Racebike, Alpine Skiing and a bit of Climbing (Bouldering) and Golfing. After my first experience in freediving I am pretty amazed… therefore it would be perfect to get a freediving buddy on board.

Another lifetime topics of mine is photography. I am there on a semi-professional level. Whenever I needed photography in my professional life it was most likely that I did it on my own - including studio work…

One remark on the „romance“ topic… I do respect crew who share in their profile „no romance“…. For me having an interesting exchange with nice people is more important than romance…. On the long run it would be great to find a soulmate for the trip around the world..

Please note: I am in a relationship with a lovely lady and we do plan for longer sailing trips together... since I do not want to loose my existing contacts here I remain with the current status....

About the boat, the plans, and current crew

usually cleanhave a holidayshare experiencevisit remote placesseek adventurefulfill a dreamface challengeslive off the gridmulticultural

Upfront my actual plans when I will on the boat - and be able to welcome crew..

• The next trip to my boat is not defined yet
There should be 2 trips in 2024, one should be July/August for 3 weeks and the other one maybe October/November both for 4-6 weeks

• The first days will be in the boatyard to finish some projects… up to 2 weeks.. but hopefully much shorter
• helping hands are welcome...
• in the moment I am flexible with the exact timing so you can tell me your wishes…

The boat is a Tiki 38 build in the Philippines splashing water 2019.

Actually the boat is still getting some upgrades for more comfort and safety. Unfortunately some repair work is necessary, too But I do not want to sacrifice the Wharram lifestyle of minimalism.

The current location is a perfect spot for this kind of work but I do want to leave as soon as these upgrades are done. But I do plan some extended sails in the region…

It will remain here until Q2 2025 at least, Than I plan a trip to Japan before bringing here to the Mediterranien… depending on the Typhoon situation... Otherwise I will sail in the region having Coron, Raja Amat and/or Bali in mind... keeping Cebu/Danao City as "home base"

After some further upgrades in the Philippines the circumnavigation should continue including the great loop.

What is expected of the crew

I do have the necessary certifications for my vessel - but so far minimalistic. I do have > 1500 nm sailing experience, mostly in the Baltic Sea as well as inshore sail areas in Germany. It is planned to extend the certifications in the near future. Meanwhile I added close to 500nm in the Camotes Sea of the Philippines

I do have substantial navigation skills from my time serving in the military. Another topic is weather evaluation. I studied 2 Semesters of Climatology during my university times… My personal goal is to avoid dangerous weather conditions as much as possible. Luckily the sail area of the current location hs too interesting spots every 20-30nm - so perfect daysailing distances - and you should daysail there….

Therefore Crew with much more sailing experience is heartly welcome to join the adventure of sailing… maybe for the hole circumnavigation….

Generally spoken: i do want to do larger ocean crossings for circumnavigation - and I do not want to travel alone… therefore female crew is welcome - and for longer passages > 5-7 days I plan to be at least 3-4 people on board.
