So I am ready to embark for my second round of the world. New boat
, new ideas and new destination
Last trip was with an Albin Vega
27’ . Now totally upgraded to a Great Dane 37. Removed the mizzen mast
for single mast
setup (more place for wind vane
, solars, wind generator
So the plans are to go from Europe
to the canaries
but instead of joining everyone else I go to Gambia and later guinea Bissau. From there Brazil
and further south to round the cape.
But I was also thinking about taking it a step further and go to Antarctica (when in the neighborhood!)
is equipped and complete refitted for the hardest condition I expect to meet during the sail.
However, I see it is very (very very) difficult finding insurance
companies willing to insure boats to meet new regulations
of visiting this land.
is registered in Norway
which mean I can use Norwegian regulations
(needs to have insurance
of an insane amount) or I can use my citizenship of Swedish. Then I only need to use insurance covering any natural disasters I may cause (oil spill etc - still at a crazy amount).
Every insurance company I speak to are either not doing it or “just” stopping providing this service
I’ve tried so many insurance companies it is insane. If anyone have any pointers please let me know.
(Or for that matter have any ideas if possible fines for not being allowed visiting this land of, what it seem, everyone’s claim but none that controls...)
