Sailing Escape

Annemarie and Volker have been traveling the world on their sailing boat "Escape" since early 2019. Escape, a CNB 66, was launched in March 2019 and to date, Feb 2021, the couple have sailed around 8,000 nautical miles.

They joined the Salty Dawgs Fall Rally and set off from Hampton, VA on November 2nd 2020 , next stop Antigua. After following their blog for a while, we said "could we share your Antigua & Babuda leg", and they said "yes of course".


So, as an insight into sailing around our two little Islands in the Caribbean during a worldwide pandemic we think you might like this chapter in their journey.

To see all of their story use any of the links with each blog below.

How Do You Adopt a Donkey

On our island tour we also visit the Antigua Donkey Sanctuary, a care station for abandoned donkeys. The skipper would have liked to cross this program point from the list, but he had to bow to the majority.

Island Tour

Escape is still securely moored in Nelsons's Dockyard. We would like to take this opportunity to take a closer look at Antigua.

The escape crew wishes you a Merry Christmas.

Is it even allowed to speak of a “Merry Christmas” this year?

Check in in Antigua in Times of COVID

When we drop anchor after the turbulent passage in English Harbor, we have arrived at our destination, but have not yet officially entered Antigua. A lot of formalities still have to be dealt with first. I finally have an active part in this trip.

Passage from Chesapeake Bay to Antigua.

After the second day of our passage has quietly come to an end, I do the first night watch. It is quiet; the skipper sleeps down in the cabin. I'm happy when he comes up around 0.30am and takes over the watch.
