Sailing blog Sailrivercafe
We have been travelling ever since we can remember and at the beginning of the millennium we discovered offshore sailing for ourselves. We have visited more than 100 of the 197 countries of the United Nations. There are still more to come.
In 2016, we sailed double handed across the Atlantic for the very first time. We were on the move for a year with our Hanse505 monohull. From our home port Valencia (E) to the Caribbean. It was a crazy year, the hardest but the best of our lives.
It changed us and we decided that we wanted to leave again. So we sold everything, switched from a monohull to a catamaran and set off around the world on our new boat. About us Karin
In 2020 we started our new adventure: with our Leopard 45 catamaran “Rivercafe” we will sail our (super beautiful) Luxembourg flag around the world. Open End. Sailing is for us the perfect way of travelling to leave as small a footprint as possible and not to burden nature.
Now we are on the journey, discovering, experimenting and learning. We enjoy the wonderful climate and the life in nature. Even though travelling is not easy at the moment, we are happy to be on our way.
So welcome to our website. We are happy to share our experiences with you. And of course we are looking forward to your messages or comments.

About us: Karin and Holger in brief
Neither of us are drop-outs. We will certainly not be seen in an drop-out show. Rather, we are beginners in a different way of life, we want to try something new.
For more than 28 years, we owned and managed international marketing and design companies in Germany and Luxembourg. Ka has also achieved remarkable as an artist (painting) – you can find her at Behance.net. We speak German, English, French and Luxembourgish, but we only want to write this blog in German and English.
During the year at sea we experienced that we were even more creative and had more interesting thoughts without the civilised everyday life. We will try a different rhythm and work on different topics during the trip. The output will simply be sunnier :-). We cordially invite you to join us on our journey and look forward to hearing from you.
