We’re doing this – Atlantic 2017!

We’ve been secretly planning this for quite some time now, and it’s time to share! Mateńka will return to the wide oceans again as we attempt to cross the Atlantic with her for a second time, on the 30th anniversary of her first crossing!

In 1987 Mateńka participated in ARC’87, the Atlantic Rally for Cruisers. On board back then Mateńka’s former owner Nikodem Jasiński, my dad. From Gran Canaria to Barbados they sailed over 21 days and stopped in many places on the remaining route.

Equipped with dad’s logbook from 1987 and a lot of crazy, we aim to participate in ARC’17, from Gran Canaria to St. Lucia at the end of 2017. We’ve planned out the route to the Canary Islands, to get the ARC starting point in time, but there’s still a lot of work to be done. Read more on our preparation page.

We will share as many details with you as possible, while we prepare Mateńka for the Atlantic crossing later this year and of course along the way!
