About our first boat and how we found her:
Sailing vessel East of the Sun 1 was a 35ft one-off sloop rig. Build in 1979 as a small-size cruiser for an unknown Dutch sailor. We know with reasonable certainty she was build in Holland, but can’t be 100%. We do know that she crossed the Atlantic ocean twice, spent 8 years in the Caribbean area and than sailed back, spending several years in the Mediterranean sea (mainly Greece and Turkey) before she came back to the Netherlands.
There her previous owner put her on the hard for the winter, but subsequently did not sail her again due to old age, leaving the ship on the hard for three years before finally selling her to us 🙂
