With a sailingboat from Nuremberg to Istanbul
Pictures from an adventure holiday 

In my youth I read the book by the circumnavigator Rollo Gebhard about his turn round the world, beginnig with the danube.Since this time I had the dream of following his way down the danube.

Back then I canoed from the source near Blaubeuren to Kelheim and also the part between Deggendorf and Vienna.
During the cold war travelling through the countries east of Austria was only possible, if you were with organised groups like the TID. Now the border to the east is open and also the war between NATO and Serbia is part of the past, so it`s not complicated to make the trip to the Black Sea.

First I wanted to use my own yacht, but I had expensive problems with the engine. During living on board in the Marina Nuremberg I met Tony, who made a rest in our harbour and who invited me to become a member of his crew.

So we decidet to make this trip together with the NAOMI from Tony. 

April 2007:

Naomi on it`s place for the winter in my home marina.

Beginning of Mai 2007:

The boat is into the water. My daughter is testing the Dingi under hardest rules. ;-)

Naomi is ready to go in the marina of Nuremberg. The bimini top we made by ourself during the weeks before. The hole equipment ist checked and the engine gots a service.

We fixed the leaving date on the 18.May 2007 and the third crew member Keith is arriving some days before.
