There is a story at sea

It has been the dream of a child that became the life of a grown up: Casting off to see the worlds remotest shorelines and islands to live the adventures of a traveller and sailor.

The current journey begun 2009 in Germany and from aboard my sailboat Paulinchen I freelance as a writer, photographer, videographer, podcaster,… My work covers technical topics, travel stories from along the route, sailing in general and is a lot about the people and challenges that come up on the way. – First hand experience, accompanied by high quality footage.


While stopping here and there I also do presentations about this trip at yacht clubs or special events like boat shows. Contact me if you are interested in hosting an event or need further information.


Some Projects




The Podcast-Project „Segelradio“ (german for „Sailing-Radio“) is about long term cruises, sailors and people I meet in ports and anchorages. We talk about the amazing experiences, the day to day living on a boat, expectations and reality of cruising. Depending on who I partner with for an episode these talks will sometimes be in english while most of the content is german. All english episodes will be listed on my english cruising blog and the whole podcast can be subscribed to at www.segelradio.de or directly via iTunes[/one_third]


Paulinchen at Sea

Sailing the World:


In April 2009 I traded office and desk for a chart table on a boat. Freelancing from aboard Paulinchen I cruised Europe’s Baltic Sea and crossed the Atlantic Ocean to northern America. Warmer, season free life has begun by eventually reaching the Caribbean Sea to head along Central America to Panama. From here the journey will continue toward the amazing landscapes of Patagonia. The cruise and my experience along the route is covered in several articles on- and offline. You can find some at: www.paulinchen-worldwide.com

My latest Adventure pulls me off the sailing track I followed for the last few years: Aboard the amazing yacht Roland von Bremen I am about to cruise Norways Lofoten Islands. a group of rugged rocks, remote and dotted with small fishing villages between high cliffs. Find out more about this trip in a few weeks when I return from above the Arctic Circle and follow how the experience on facebook, twitter and Instagram.
