Sailing the Witte Walrus and Java, 2 years on water

Nicolaas Heyning

Dear all,

fruit flies like a banana, time flies like an arrow...

After 2 years of adventure we are more than happy to be back in the Netherlands for a tropical break, while Java is safe and dry on Curacao. Here is a short video to remember and thank everybody for all the support along the way. Thank you all!  

Love and Peace

Java in Grenada, hell of a job in paradise

Nicolaas Heyning

Imagine you have to work in a Turkish bath every day. And not only working but also living there. Well, this is how we felt in Grenada. 

We postponed some work on Java for this last stop before crossing to the ABC islands, but we underestimated the climate and the condition of our stanchions. Shortly said, we spend one month in Grenada, in a Yacht Club, so no swimming and working daily on the boat.

We made some excursions and met luckily some nice locals, but in general the vibe was not good and we were happy to leave the island. But Grenada itself is a beautiful green island with very tasty chocolate. It just wasn't the right moment for us. 

We decided to take a break from Java and our sailing life. We are almost 2 years on the water now and we kind of got on overdosis of each other, of the cruising life, of everything. We need a change of scenery, so we decided to go for the summer home and relax. Enjoy the land comfort with a hot shower, a big bed, a dishwasher, plenty of sweet water and of course our beloved friends and family. 

However here some impressions of the last weeks. Check our blog  to see our latest video and how we our doing.

Sailing in the Grenadines with Njord, Ladysunshine and Allegro

Nicolaas Heyning

After the visit of Rea's parents, we started sailing south. We stopped for a last time on our favorite island Dominica and then continued to the Grenadines in order to meet with our beloved friend Ruben. It was the first time that we sailed overnight and for a longer distance, but everything went fine and we had a good time. 

While we discovered with Njord the long deserted beaches and the beauty of each island, we finally met a boat with kids, even two: Landysunshine from Germany and Allegro from Brasil, a perfect combination for us. Samuel is having fun with his new friend Javik (3,5 years old) and even if they hit each other or have difficulties in sharing they do call themselves best friends and are asking to see each other. Meanwhile Igor, the 6st year old Brazilian boy looks terrified when the two little monsters are coming and play or better said trow with his toys. The best playground is the beach though for all of us. 

We also made new Dutch friends on Matsja, whom we will see again in Bonaire. So suddenly a lot of social activities for us and more fun sailing. 

Here some impressions of the last weeks. Check our blog  to see our latest video and how we our doing.

Java sailing the French Islands

Nicolaas Heyning

We sailed together with Rea's parents around the French Islands: Guadeloupe, Ile de Saintes, Marie Galante. All of them different from each other. It was great to have family on board and we had a good time together. We sailed a lot but also visited this beautiful islands. Marie Galante was our favorite, followed by Guadeloupe, which surprised us by its diversity and friendly people, the food not to mention...

Now we are heading south continue cruising. 

Love and Peace, Nico&Rea

Sailing Marie-Galante

Nicolaas Heyning

We have visited the island Marie-Galante, a small island which is part of Guadeloupe and is as flat as a pancake. Time is standing still in this beautiful place. There is a lot of sugar cane farming and they produce the best rum. People are super friendly and greet you everywhere.

We had a lot of fun hanging out with our sailor friends from America, Ireland and Germany.

Dominica, the green island

Nicolaas Heyning

Dominica, the green island

We wanted very much to get here and indeed it was as extraordinary as expected. Such an almost untouched island, but green hills, rainforest, rivers, hot springs, waterfalls and more waterfalls, everyday a rainbow and with it also some rain. The locals were very friendly, open, curious and helpful. On the first impression you might think that there is some poverty but on a second look you see actually how rich the people here are: water taps on every corner, rich soil for vegetables and fruits and safety. I would almost call it a precious paradise that hopefully stays like this. There is no international airport, so this might help and contribute to the preservation of Dominica. 

We have been here for almost 3 weeks and it was a lot of fun, we were socially very active and Samuel joined and had fun and made friends. Hiking, singing, playing games, exploring, a lot of laughing and a lot of drinking (the rum punch in Dominica at Felix Bar is the best till now), interesting political and future conversations.

Thank you Dominica, we had a very good time and we will surely come back again. 

Love and Peace

Martinique was our second island here in the Caribbean waters and it was quite a contrast to Santa Lucia. Suddenly you have almost European standards but surrounded by palm trees and nice beaches and of course tasty croissants. 

We had to get used though to speak French, our brain was still dominated by Spanish, but at the end we managed. 

We celebrated carneval in Martinique, a separate video will follow later. 

Happy Holidays to everybody, hope you enjoy spring!

ps. the video is this time in low quality since it took us almost 3 weeks to upload it, an internet cable between the US and Guadeloupe is broken. 


Saint Lucia - our first Caribbean island

Nicolaas Heyning


here is our first Caribbean adventure. After spending some time in Rodney Bay, we started moving south and the island got more and more beautiful: Mangrove, volcano, mud baths, rainforest, snorkeling, hiking, luxury swimming pool chilling, some sailing, nice anchoring spots, a veggie market with a DJ and very kind and helpful people. The highlight of this island was the visit of Wied en Diederik. 


We also have some news:

We’ve got a new phone number +44 793759879. With this number we don’t depend on wifi anymore and have the possibility to chat (only text) via whatsapp, Facebook messenger etc. with you guys. Our Dutch number we keep of course, but the number has no service here, so we use it only when there is wifi. 
For the travelers out there, we can only recommend this service from CHATSIM,  it’s a great way to communicate while traveling and costs only 12 Euro per year. Use this promotion code CAMB9DUJ in case you order it, then we both get some credits for free.

Peace & Love,
Nico, Samuel and Rea

Crossing the atlantic ocean

Nicolaas Heyning

We left Amsterdam on the 1st of August 2014 with the goal to sail to the Carribean. It took us longer then expected and 3 boats to get here, but we finally made it and are now in paradise.

The crossing was exhausting, adventurous and prosperous. Samuel adapted amazingly well. Java sailed like a super champion!

Now we relax in Carribean waters. We don't have any plans, we just float with the flow and see what happens. There is a lot to discover here, so we will keep you posted.


Love and happy 2017

Nicolaas, Rea and Samuel

Sailing from La Gomera to Mindelo

Nicolaas Heyning

We have made it!

We sailed in 9 days to Mindelo.

It was a very nice trip, with lots of variety.  The crew was well and everybody enjoyed it. It was also great to have arrived at Mindelo.


Now we sail on to the Caribbean.  Probably two to three weeks at sea. We are excited to go again!
