"In 20 years, you will be more disappointed by the things you didn't do than by the things you did do. So untie the knots, run out of the safe harbour. Catch the trade winds with your
Sails. Explore. Dream."
Mark Twain (Writer)

Water under keel
The ground rocks underfoot, a fresh wind blows through the gray beard, the gaze wanders over the horizon, where the outlines of the Kiel skyline can be faintly made out. Seagulls circle overhead and the water laps against the bow like music. Andreas Köpke is a passionate sea dog. He has been sailing the world's oceans on his traditional sailing vessel for 35 years.
