Around the world Sailing Holidays on SY “Free Spirit”

Hop on board and join a circumnavigation on a small sailboat. The trip around the world is divided in many legs (nautical term for “parts”). Some legs are as short as one week, some are five weeks long. Every leg is planned in a way that if the boat would sail 24/7 the final destination would be reached in around half the time planned for it. Therefore, there is plenty of time left to explore the most remote destinations around the world.

A few locations that we visited, or will visit: Canary Islands, Cape Verde, Caribbean, San Blas, Panama, Galapagos, Marquesas, Fakarava, Tahiti, Bora Bora, Niue, Cook Islands, Fiji, Vanuatu, North Australia, Bali, Singapore, Thailand, Sri Lanka, Maldives, Oman, Sudan, Egypt, Greece.

Our sailing trip started in August 2022 in Greece and went westwards. It was planned for about two years but the more we sail the more we want to see. Every now and then we make a stop for boat maintenance and improvement, skipper resting and down-time periods and relaxing. Every sailing trip on this large adventure is unique and special. Mostly there is plenty of sailing, including night sailing, but that long passages are rewarded with exploration of paradise islands that not many have seen.

If your adventure spirit awakens, if your feet itch and your curiosity sparks with the pictures of foreign lands, beaches, palms, and different cultures, join us sailing. You are most welcome. The sailboat has a very fitting name: “Free Spirit”. Go ahead, taste the freedom under the sails!

Join once in a lifetime adventure sailing trip

Please read the following to understand what joining one of the sailing holidays on Free Spirit means. The type of sailing on these adventures is way different to the usual sailing trips we organise, because:

  • schedule: there is a schedule to meet. The distances are planned in a way that if the boat sails 24/7 the whole distance of the trip would be covered in half the planned time. Meaning, if the trip is planned for 14 nights, the estimated sailing time is 7 days and 7 nights non stop. The remaining-time is for exploration, adventures and meeting the unexpected.
  • shifts: we all take various roles and participate in crewing the boat. The shifts rotate between: cooking, resting and sailing. 24/7. Night shifts are shorter than day shifts.
  • self-reliability: help is usually far away. There are other boats sailing in the area, cargo ships, etc… but if the shit hits the fan we will need to solve the problem ourselves. Sometimes for a few days straight you will not see land.
  • different cultures: we are visiting some of the most remote destinations in the world. Expect things to be different or to not work as you are used to.
  • night sailing: at least half of the time on the trip the boat is going to be under sail, day and night.
  • not a holiday: that is not really true. It depends on your definition of a holiday, for some people what is presented here is the best holiday ever 😉

Itinerary for Sailing Trip around the world

Below is a general itinerary for the circumnavigation of the globe on Sailing Yacht “Free Spirit”. There may be small changes happening from time to time but in general the plan is made. Of course natural occurances may slow down the trip but that was taken into consideration while planning.

About the skipper

Moritz is the skipper on this circumnavigation. Mortiz has got plenty of sailing expereince, has a great vibe, cares about his crew and makes everyone feel home from the start. Moritz will be your captian, friend, and your master of ceremony. Count on many tales from 7 seas across the world. Here is what he writes about himself:

“I have worked for more than 10 years as a skipper on charter yachts, on 100+ trips and I love organizing trips. I have always been an adventure-seeker, now I am organizing an even bigger adventure.

The last six years, I have worked full-time as a journalist. Before, have studied Sociology and Politics. I have some DIY experience both from sailing on a tall ship and home renovation. My research skills, knowledge about how societies work and practical experience will be useful when sailing around the world.

20.000 nautical miles in, I can say that my sailing style is definitely rather chillaxing than regatta. I always hunt for the off-the-beaten-track experience and the coolest anchorage.

On my trips, I always try to organize a good mix of sailing, swimming and sun-tanning, cooking and drinking together, exploring ashore in an anchorage and islands – and doing silly things and having fun doing that is also part of it 😉

About the yacht

The sailboat that you will be on is fully prepared for many weeks at sea without touching land. It is a Dufour Classic from 1999 and features: solar panels with strong lithium batteries, water maker, generator, all safety equipment and satellite communications. There is also a satellite tracker that Moritz switches on when sailing offshore for longer. Your loved ones will be able to track your adventures’ progress. The latest addition is a Parasailor – a perfect light wind sail that will make the most of downwind cruising on a sailboat. There are two toilets/showers, fridge, gas stove, and plenty of space for provisions. 

NOTE: Solo travellers share a cabin with another solo traveller of the same gender.


Reserve your berth now

As the trip progresses you will be able to see here all the legs (parts) that you can join. Sometimes it is as short as 1 week, sometimes it may be a 5 week long sailing trip. Feel free to contact us in case of any questions.
