Single-handed around the atlantic – Episode 1: From Fehmarn to Roscoff

It all started in 2006 with a weekend trip on the dutch inland seas. Guido Dwersteg was infected with the sailing virus. Two years later he passed his leadoff boating license. Following first experiences as a skipper, he bought his own sailing boat. In 2012 he finally set off, to cross the atlantic ocean single-handed with his „Carpe Diem“, a Bavaria 32 Holiday. And he has filmed! The first episode of his documentary leads us from Fehmarn (GER) to Roscoff (FRA). The result is a lovingly made film, which also contains many useful knowledge and information along his way. We are also looking forward to episode 2, coming up soon. More information about the trip and Guido can be found on his website .
