German Podcast: Her goal was to travel through South America - but with Covid 19 (Corona virus) and the associated global shutdown, everything turned out differently. Moni, our youngest female crew member, is now traveling back to Germany. On the fifth trip of Avontuur, our Voyage 5, we have now loaded more than 60 tons of cargo from organic origin and fair trade together. Emotions, backgrounds, everyday ship life, freight, national borders. Background information about our expedition in Corona times.
Voyage 5, an expedition full of challenges, unimagined beauty. I am now revisiting old stories from days of clean world trade. Seafarers sailed hundreds of years ago, carried by winds, in harmony with the elements of the sea. I experience a changing world, see blue expanses, swim in the ocean, see dolphins, sharks, whales and dream of a better future, biodiversity instead of extinction, a sense. Float like in a dream, in the cosmos, the universe and sail across the world's oceans in times of global shutdown, closed borders.
"You will no longer find the world as you know it." This message reached us on March 16, 2020, from Cornelius Bockermann (Timbercoast). Three months ago, we launched our sails towards Central America. The world we left in Elsfleth (near Bremen) suddenly became a completely different one. Within a few weeks, our blue planet changed through a global shutdown: pandemic corona.
Crossing the Atlantic - Life journey, Mother and daughter: sailing for change. Athena Corcoran-Tadd & Jennifer Corcoran with Peggy Merkur on Voyage 5 We sail clean and emission-free trade routes with a load capacity of up to 114 tons. We started on January 17th, 2020. We have been working on the tugging sails ever since. At the crucial moment we become one, in the team, with the winds and waves, the Avontuur. How it goes on, which challenges this expedition brings for a better future you can find out here: http://www.peggymerkur.blog.

The start of the Atlantic crossing is imminent. "The pessimist complains about the wind, the optimist hopes that it turns, the realist aligns the sail." (S.W.Ward)
Impressions from Elsfleth. Directly from the sailing ship. "When the wind of change blows, some seek shelter in the harbour while others set sail!" (Unknown)
