Gone sailing.

Who we are

Thomas

I had a career, I had a house, an expensive car and I was one of the 3% of the best-earning people in Germany. But still I was always looking for the next, the better, the further, the more expensive.
This search ends instantly when you are on a sailboat. And it even ends permanently when you live aboard a boat. Because when sailing, it's all about the 'now'.  The moment.

It doesn't take much to achieve that.  Actually it is only one second. One second to have the courage for this decision. Because once you've made that,  almost everything else falls into place.

Documenting this idea of the ‚now‘ of living the moment and sharing it with others is something my job as a filmmaker and photographer helps me to do. Because also when we take pictures, we freeze time. 

And thus give moments a sense of eternity.

That's why I decided to combine life and work on my boat.
Welcome to my journey.


RAGNA

Ragna is  a 33ft Compromis 999 built by Zaadnorddijk Jachtbuilders, better known as C-Yacht today. The dutch shipyard is known for their high building quality and  sturdy, seagoing ships.
Ragna is a center-cockpit yacht, which provides plenty of space to live and work down below. In Winter 2021/22 she got a somewhat extensive refit so that she is now equipped with an active AIS Transponder, Radar, an electric windlass, 560Ah LiFoPo4 Batteries, Solarpanels, red-light below and on deck, etc.

Besides some stuff, that makes living aboard more comfortable like a hotwater boiler, diesel heater, a mobile router with a range of 20nm and, my favorite gadget, a Garmin videocam at the bow, providing an undisguised view ahead that is otherwise disturbed by the huge Genua.
