Sailing Transatlantic on a Catamaran

Join us aboard the Bluewater 50 catamaran, “Zao”, for an offshore passage throughout the Atlantic! We and a crew of sailing writers and videographers go aboard this luxurious catamaran in Las Palmas, Gran Canaria, in the Canary Islands and start a 3,000-mile transatlantic crossing to the Caribbean. In this episode, we prepare the boat in Las Palmas, then established sail on a magical voyage throughout the Atlantic Ocean. It is our 8th crossing but the first one particular that we’ve ever finished on a multi-hull. Adhere to this collection to see what crossing an ocean is like aboard a catamaran.
