Write a book, your philosophies or poems. Produce a video or a picture collection. Be a painter, look at moons and stars in the night, sunrise and sunsets, dive, fish, visit many harbours and cities or be creative as you like - at the same time as we sail from Europe westwards over the Atlantic Ocean to Carribean, Pacific Ocean towards Asia near Cambodia, Vietnam and finally to Thailand.

The journey will take approx. 14 months. The journey will start from Split, Croatia around 15th. October 2016. Before the journey starts the crew will go through a course on how it is to be on a Bavaria 50 yacht and for a longer period and a course in sailing this yacht(if never tried before). The yacht will sail mainly by sails but is able to pursue by engine keeping the schedule.

If we reach a crew of 8-10 persons, the basic crew contribution on the journey will be the amount of app. $ 35-40 per. day per person depending on general boat operation expenses, various expenses, and partly your qualifications. Basis contribution is also covering: Boat insurance (kasko, passenger insurance, liability) boat maintenance, equipment maintenance, spare-parts, and harbour fees. Furthermore your share of supply is approx. $ 200-300 (for food, fuel and beverages etc.

The vessel VERITAS is a 50 feet(14,9352 meters) Bavaria sailing cruiser with 11 berths 5 cabins, 3 toilets and bathrooms, kicthen and sitting salon as well as cockpit on upper deck. 3 cabins are double beds and 2 cabin are with bunk beds. The Vessel is with modern security and navigation equipment (Radar, GPS, Echo sounder, navigator, Auto-pilot, etc.). The vessel is very safe and automatic. The vessel has a large engine that can provide a significant speed. The yacht is made of strong glassfiber has an TMD 22, 78 HK Volvo Penta engine and is well equiped. Among security equipment there is a safety raft for 10-12 persons plus a rubber dinghy with an outbound engine. (see below for our basic equipment list). Veritas are taken care of daily by CYC-Croatia Yacht Club - Segla i Kroatien med b?tcharter och upplev segling p? riktigt. CYC knows both Veritas and skipper: Peter Leif Tronborg Petersen

It will be possible to make tours on land and it is possible to proceed on land and join the vessel later on another place. During the journey it will be possible to visit smaller and larger harbours and islands and to take a hike around when its possible. It is not possible to predict accurate where we will go ashore and anchor, but it will be a part of the journey to harbours as often as it is possible. There will also be plentiful night sailings. On the journey we will also be concerned of all crew requirements, individually and in generel.
