Who are we?
The captains Heinz Wutschke and Greet Dekker are also the proud owners
of the 22 meter sailing vessel, the Anne-Margaretha, a ship we built
ourselves. Once we had a dream to sail our own ship together with
friends and guests over the oceans far away from the crowded life to
enjoy everything that makes the sea so special.
We are still surprised by spectacular sunrises and sunsets, starry
skies, moonlit and moonless nights, dolphins who play for hours
alongside our ship and of course the whales, very close to the
Step by step our dream came true. In 2007-2008 we made our first world
trip and sailed via Lisbon to the Canary Islands, the Cape Verde
Islands, and on to Brazil. From Salvador da Bahaia and Rio de Janeiro
we sailed to the southernmost point of Argentina – Ushuaia - our point
of departure for three expeditions to Antarctica, the great, silent,
white continent. On our return trip, we discovered the incredible
natural beauty of the western coast of South America, including
Patagonia, the Panama Canal, and the Caribbean.
We like to share sailing with other people. Our guests are a part of
the on-board team, a caring community of experienced and novice sailors
who learn navigation, steering, setting sails etc. to the extent they
wish. We expect a helping hand in the kitchen now and then as we
prepare our tasty meals together. We may even catch our own fish!
We welcome 12 guests on the Anne-Margaretha and our ship is big enough to be alone now and then.
During the trips you will be part of a watch for 4 hours with an
experienced leader and for 8 hours you're free. We often sail day and
night, so you will participate in the beauty of night sailing as well.
The most important thing will be that you'll make a once-in-a-lifetime
sailing trip with the Anne-Margaretha you never will forget.
Our daughter Anne-Floor and son Sam are passionated seasailors also!
