We feel we need to provide a little explanation…
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. Last year we purchased a 20 year old boat that suited our needs. We are currently preparing it for the big trip… from Rome to the other side of the world(!). While the details of the full plan still need to be determined, a first, very clear milestone is set: leave Santa Cruz de Tenerife on November 19th, 2016 heading to Barbados. We will not do this alone, but “together” with several other boats joining the Cornell Atlantic Odyssey!
