Now the crew is complete it’s time we finally introduce ourselves!
We are a Dutch sailing family who resides in Malta. We have run a successful catamaran charter company over the years and take guests to the most beautiful spots of the island.
In 2020 we decided to sail to Greece during summer since we were not able to take guests for a long time. During this trip the amazing plans for this crossing came to life.
A new Lagoon 46 catamaran waited for us in La Rochelle in July this year and we sailed her down to Malta to shake the dust off and see what she was capable of. Loaded all our belongings on board and with 5000 test miles we are now ready in Las Palmas to cross the Atlantic.
Our crew is Dutch and Maltese/American and we are all friends from Malta.
Every member has his own expertise and some are professional seafarers. We are confident that we have the right mix on board and our 7 year old girl Lisa is the bravest of all! She runs night shifts, helps with the fenders and is a great entertainer.
During our trip we will all improve our navigation skills.
Other than that, Steve will learn to speak Italian and will show us his great fishing expertise. Johan will master his splicing skills and finally take his star sights.
Agnes will practise playing ukulele during her night watch. During daytime she will be busy with navigating, video editing, and teaching.
Lisa is determined to improve her Spanish and navigation knowledge and will assist where she can. She is very much involved.
Rien will drill us like a soldier so we stay fit on board and Alex is an amazing chef!
Together we sail with a big smile and want to share our positivity with others. We will update you all on a regular basis and hope you will enjoy our adventures.
Team Maxim, Let's Go!
