katarina

Interested in alternative forms of living, mostly the off-grid styles. After her first sailing experience she was caught up immediately. She was following channels like Delos and LaVagabonde almost from their beginnings and now it a pleasure to share context with KrakenLife readers. Formerly educated as books restorer, some history-related content will be seen from her, along with themes related to ecology, craftsmanship and practicality of living aboard. Ship of your dreams: The most crazy thing I would be able to do if I would be zillionare is big wooden yacht with three masts. Like Maltese Falcon but more classic. Any habitable ship may be considered as ship of my dreams, ketch would be plus, besides central cockpit and aluminium hull. Ship that “would be enought”: Wharam catamarans looks doable. Many of almost ruined ships can be reffited well by owners hands. In monohulls world, 38 or 40ft is minimum for full living aboard in my opinion. Places to sail before die? New Zealand, Coconut Islands and Iceland. Those are all islands i know, but i am also thing that big thing is the feel when you reach land after ocean croossing and you know that it is whole new continent, not just land in the middle of ocean. Races to sail before die? Sydney-Hobard race looks seductive to me, but maybe not competitive challenges like arctic sailing looks tempting to me. I would like to sail to Antarctica, but with some scientific purpose, even negligible one like take some samples, make some measurements, or bring something to real expeditions.
