The crew consists of Nicolaas Heyning (1982), Rea Abermann (1979) and their son Samuel (2014).
Nicolaas has a lot of sailing experience. In 2007 he did his first crossing of the Atlantic ocean. He is completely in his element on the water, enjoys working on the boat and loves adventure.
Rea has gotten into contact with sailing via Nicolaas. She loves to be outside, enjoys swimming and meeting new people. As a food coach she studies anything that has to do with food and how it interacts with people. Living on a boat is challenging but also very instructive. I like it to live so close to the elements and being busy with surviving.
Traveling means not only adapting to the cultural habbits but also to the local and seisonal products. Many of my memories are connected to food. I visit every market I can, I talk to farmer,s exchange recipes or just try to learn and absorb what people are whilling to share. I´m writting this blog as a memory for myself but also for the one of you who wants to see how it is to cook on a boat with limited ressources but also who is curious to get into different cuisines. At the moment we are sailing around the Canary Islands. There is no chronological order and I poste what we like most and think it´s worth sharing. Obviously the healthy aspect is always present since I consider Samuel´s (no sugar and as many veggies as possible) diet. However, enjoy, try out your own version I would say and feel free to comment if you liked it.
