Buy sailingNV a coffee


Caio! We are Timo and Jo, an Italian and English couple with countless ocean miles under our belts, including sailing half way around the world from Europe to Fiji!

Last year we bought an Open 66 ft race sailing boat originally designed and built by the famous Hungarian sailor Nándor Fa. Nándor raced the boat in the 1990 and 1992 Vendée Globe (round the world single handed race known as “the Everest of the seas”), becoming the first non-frenchman to finish the race.

We are currently in Fiji giving this old gladiator a new lease on life, transforming her from an ex race boat to a performance family cruiser, which we'll need to make both dog and baby proof! We’re planning to set sail again in Oct 2022, so with limited time&money we have plenty of challenges ahead to turn our dreams into reality&get back on the water! 

We’ve started making YouTube videos of the refit, along with 'how to' videos about anything boat related.

Thank you so much for considering to support us, it’s thanks to you that we are able to spend more time working on NV and making these videos than on our day jobs! You are quite literally putting the wind in our sails.
