SV UMA & Prof. Enzyme and Capt. Sunder
Kika (Haiti) and Dan (Canada) decided one day, to not buy a couch but instead got rid of everything they didn`t need and moved onto a small sailboat that was on its way to the junkyard.
They spent the first two years fixing her up, replacing the Diesel engine with an all electrical system. After that followed seven years sailing the world and upgrading their electrical sailboat along the way.
Today, Kika and Dan continue to explore the wonders of this planet, learning new cutures and sharing their journey one step at a time.

“In the last six years of coastal cruising around the world, we were often shocked by the amount of single use plastic on the beaches and floating in the ocean. We’ve collaborated with several other organization, to help clean beaches and raise awareness. We now have the opportunity to be even more involved, and to participate in a project that helps make the world a better and cleaner place.”
