I grew up by the quite large waters of Zalew Szczecinski, and nearby the second biggest lake in Poland, Dabie. From my early days, sailing small craft made by my dad and his friend, I was experiencing adventures, storms, and lonely escapades. Next was marine college, with the hope to get some job on the sea, but instead the brutal reality of early ‘90s put me off, the political and economic situation in a post-communist country, meant without connections, political or commercial, a career in the marine industry was just not possible and I had to make a landsman’s career.
Currently I own a 26’ Westerly Centaur, and I actively sail along the South and West coast of Ireland. Sometimes I deliver yachts for others around Ireland, Scotland and Spain.
But all that is not fulfilling my soul’s desire; having two children and built a home, all that was left to do, is to “run a marathon,” and my marathon, is to circumnavigate the globe, single-handed.
