There are four Hungarian members who left in the transport, called ‘Teatime’, in a Croatian port to go through the seas in the middle of the Covid-19 pandemic.
A family from Hungary made the surprising decision to fulfill their dream in the middle of the coronavirus pandemic , determining to sail around the world in a 15-meter boat called ‘Teatime’, which began leaving Croatia at the end of June 2020 with the four members of the group.
The family began sailing in the middle of the boreal summer, and since then they have travelled around Italy and Spain, stopped for some time in Cape Verde and crossed the Atlantic.
After spending Christmas in Martinique, a French territory, they are now anchored in Marigot, on the Caribbean island of San Martin, waiting to sail towards the Panama Canal.
Although the expedition is eye-catching, they are not in a hurry, as life on the ship, as for many people quarantined in their homes, has slowed down.
“It’s a fantastic experience for me to be able to spend much more time with my children, instead of coming home late from work totally exhausted,” said Domonkos Bosze, 48, who set up an office on the ship and works in the business of information technology.
“Our route is quite flexible: basically the weather defines in which direction we are going, since the hurricane and cyclone seasons adequate the limits to navigate each region,” he added.
He and his wife Anna, who have been sailing for more than a decade before, planned the adventure in the aftermath of the Covid-19 pandemic.
While the coronavirus presented them with the dilemma of whether it was the right time to leave, in the end their determination nullified all their concerns and risks.
The biggest challenge so far has been a six-hour storm during the Atlantic crossing that they managed to overcome well, losing only a toaster and the satellite phone that broke.
The family follows the changes in the coronavirus rules in each country and is tested or quarantined as necessary.
“When we arrived in Martinique … we told the authorities that we spent 16 days in the open sea and they accepted that as a quarantine,” Bosze said.
However, the ‘Teatime’, called by the family custom of sitting down to have tea and chatting, has food for a month. And they fish their own tuna or mahi mahi (dorado), to the joy of their 6 and 8 year old daughters.
The two girls take distance classes and, if possible, will enroll in local schools to familiarize themselves with different cultures.
Depending on the Covid-19 restrictions, they plan to sail this year and the next to the Pacific and say their journey could last another 5 or 6 years, spending longer periods in the South Pacific and the Indian Ocean.
