We're Sina, Benny, Kyell and Ida, a German family exploring the world under sail.
We’ve quit our daily routines, became full time liveaboards and set out for an around the world sailing adventure on our yacht NOMAD. We’ve started in Jersey City, NJ, USA in October '19, slowly making our way to the Caribbean before continuing to the Pacific Ocean - and then a global pandemic hit!
Come and see the world through our eyes - raw and unscripted - and join us on the adventure of our lifetime!
I love sailing in flat seas... !
Est. 1985 in Germany - Sina's second name is "Provisioning". She's supplying our family with all the consumable awesomeness a heart desires and keeps our health up. She's got a bit of a sensible stomach at sea but otherwise a steadfast sailor.
Moin sunshine... !
Est. 1981 in Germany - Benny is our engineer on board. He'll fix whatever breaks and usually pretends to know what he's doing. He enjoys the "scarcely" occurring challenges of boating and likes to keep on the sunny side of life.
I'm the Käpt'n, alright... !
Est. 2016 in USA - Kyell didn't have much of a choice when we dragged him onto NOMAD at four month and sailed with him to Puerto Rico at six month. He claimed his rank on day one and is enjoying every bit of it. Kyell loves rolling towards beautiful sunsets.
Princess on deck... !
Est. 2018 in USA - Ida's favorite activity is running up to the bow or sleeping while we're underway. As long as she's treated like a princess, with an abundance of food in reach, she'll smile all day long. When she's mischievous, she'll drop all the laundry out for drying overboard.
