About Us

SAIL OUT OF THE BOX describes in a paraphrase the very root of our project: expand the boundaries we have lived in for so many years.In its simplest form, the BOX represents the geographical horizons where we typically have lived and sailed. Most importantly, it refers to the boundaries determined by our habits, knowledge, and needs.

To SAIL OUT OF THE BOX, we decided to take a pause and experience new perspectives of life. In 2015 we purchased a 20 year old boat that suited our needs. We spent a year and a half preparing it for the big trip… from Rome to the other side of the world(!). While the details of the full plan keep changing, you can review OUR ITINERARY which includes an adventurous start on October 1st, 2016 from Rome, the landing in Barbados on December 12th, the exploration of the Lesser and Greater Antilles in 2017, some relaxing time spent in the Caribbean side of Panama and its beautiful San Blas archipelago, the passage of the Panama Canal heading north to Baja California.
