    Gents i can across this site and it is wonderfull reading and very inspirational.

    Now please guys i am not advocating that you all run out there and build a small boat

    but the moral of this story to me, is that if you really want to go sailing it can be done.

    The world is a changing rapidly - go and see it before its gone to the dogs completely - be creative - build smaller and get out there faster.

    At one stage he had 2 women and board :D :D :D
    Jeez the one had beautifull t1ts :D :D :D

    enjoy the read - its loads of fun :idea: :idea: :idea:

    Some of us have followed Sven's adventures in sailing magazines since the first Bris. I met him at the Cedar Key gathering in FL last year. Many admire him for his simple life quest and adventures but few would be willing to follow them personally. He is every bit as off the beaten path as he seems.

    Tristan Jones provided a similarly entertaining series of books and articles about his adventures.

    Compared to these guys, we are all armchair sailors.

    This guy had balls where his brains are supposed to be. He also seemed to have talent as a chick magnet. I'm green with envy.
