You can follow us via Marinetraffic or Vessel Finder (and the respective apps), which are updated automatically through AIS. Note that if we are out of range (far from the coast and no vessel with satellite equipment nearby), you may not see us.
We left Amsterdam in June 2016. Our route is not definite yet and subject to weather conditions and sustainable solutions we want to visit. Nevertheless, we have a general plan: We have started in Scandinavia before heading to the Mediterranean. From there we plan to cross the Atlantic towards South America, and onwards across the Pacific to Oceania and Asia. Our final leg is to return to Amsterdam via Africa, Central- and North America.
On the map below (click to enlarge) you can see a our planned route (grey: optional).
