Drop your anchor where you like and explore the world

Biggi Krumm runs a blog on her sailing adventures with nautor swan yacht 48.
At www.worldcruisingstories.com she shares her discovering of attractive bays, beautiful anchorages and blue water sailing experiences.

Her philosophy: "Sailing is about freedom and flexibility to drop your anchor where you like and explore the world. And that in a sustainable and peaceful way "

For freedom and flexibility Biggi choose the combination of systems such as a watermaker, lithium batteries, solar panels and a genset to make her nautor swan yacht Ambra a perfect and independent performance blue water cruiser. The 24 volt solar panels on board produce the basic daily needs for refrigerator, light, navigation devices and autopilot. The solar system delivers a total of 600 watts peak:
- 200 Wp TX folding module for mobile laying out on the deck.
- 400 Wp solar on the bimini.

The 4 foldable 100 Wp TX solar panels are clipped onto the bimini with Tenax and can be easily removed again. The solar energy obtained is fed into the lithium batteries via a lithium-capable SunWare charge controller FOX-260 Li.
For 2022 Biggi Krumm is planning trips to Sicily, Greece and participation in the Atlantic Rally For Cruisers (ARC), the annual competition for cruising and regatta sailors! From Las Palmas on Gran Canaria to the destination port Rodney Bay on St. Lucia. For the approx. 2700 nm long route, yachts need between 12 and 24 days, depending on the size of the boat and the strength of the wind. Sailing is on the barefoot route in the north equatorial current with the northeast trade wind. Many thanks for the photos Biggi Krumm!
