Our adventure started 1986 when we took our HR35 Rasmus, Cantana 2, to the Med via the canals / rivers in Germany and France. During two holiday months each year 1986-1992 we sailed in France, Italy, Yugoslavia, Greece and arrived to Turkey in 1991. We changed yacht to a HR352, Cantana 3 in 1989.

Before that, during 1965-1986 we sailed Cantana 1, a 32 ft mahogany double ender in western Sweden, Norway and Denmark.

1993 Cantana 3 started sailing west.......
