From Australia to the Netherlands, sailing is best
We read about this amazing story on the social network www.sosailize.net. The Dutch traveler Jordi van der Woort, whom the coronavirus pandemic has caught in Australia, has decided that the best way to return home to the Netherlands is by sail. He sold the car on which he traveled, bought a yacht and is now looking on the Internet for those who will keep him company.
In fact, you can return to Australia from the Netherlands by plane. But air tickets, as van der Woort felt, are indecently expensive. As a result, he sold the car and bought, as you already know, a yacht – a 47-foot ketch called Samara. Despite its price, the vessel, judging by the photographs, is in quite good condition.
Another important detail, according to van der Worth, is that thanks to sailing, you can avoid the quarantine, which is mandatory for everyone who arrives in the Netherlands these days. One thought that you have to spend two weeks under lock and key causes horror in the Dutchman. And so there is a way out – until Samara overcomes 13,000 nautical miles, all prohibitions are likely to be canceled.
But you know what is the most amazing thing in this story? The 28-year-old van der Voort, as well as the 23-year-old Daniel Wessing, who was the first to respond to an offer on the Web to go on a long sea voyage, has practically no sailing experience!
What absolutely does not bother both!
