We met in Denmark October 2009, Chris is from the UK and Tanja from Denmark. I was in the process of moving to Stockholm, Sweden when we met, and in 2014 Chris joined me together with his boat Waiwurrie. We both love to travel and experience new places, cultures and meet new people. We started diving together when we met and many holidays in the darker colder months have been spend under the surface in warmer climate discovering the wonders of the sea.
The summer weekends have for the most been spend on Waiwurrie exploring the Stockholm Archipelago, meeting up with friends in a wonderful natural habour, barbequing on the rocks and enjoying the long Swedish summer nights.
The dream of a bigger boat and sailing grew year after year and in the Summer 2018 we took the leap we sold our beloved Waiwurrie and bought Aurora, a brand new Hanse 418, ready for her virgin voyage from the factory in Greifswald, Germany to her new home in Stockholm in April 2019.
Chris is a migrated Brit. Originally from Birmingham, where most weekends were spend on the long drives down to Poole Quay on Englands South Coast to enjoy the weekend on the family boat. Chris's dads passion for boats and the family's love for the sea, later meant a permanent move to the Poole area. Chris got his first boat (dinghy) when he was 4 years old, and loved playing around in the marinas. In 2009 Chris could realise a dream and buy his first real boat Waiwurrie, a Larsson 200SEI. In 2014 Chris moved to Sweden and Waiwurrie moved with him, and was the perfect little motorboat to discover and fall in love with the Stockholm Archipelago on, and this was how the dream of a bigger boat and sailing startet.
the real captain
Danish viking relocated to Stockholm in 2010. In her teenage years Tanja often joined her best friend and her family on the sailing boat for a 3 weeks summer holiday, and this was the first introduction boat life. After meeting Chris and sharing wonderful experiences on Waiwurrie, the love for the boat life was a fact. With now real sailing experience, Tanja is on a steep but exiting journey to become a sailor and get her sealegs. Tanja likes new adventures and the passion that she shares with Chris is also a part of the long term plan for going cruising and experience the ocean above and below.
