Charter skipper in the Bahamas: when the sail bothers you while sailing


For years, Johannes Erdmann lived on sailboats - most recently he and his wife offered charter trips around the Bahamas. A dream? Maybe. If only there weren't the guests.

Johannes Erdmann

, 35, grew up in Wolfsburg.

After graduating from high school, he crossed the Atlantic in a 36-year-old sailboat.

He then studied shipbuilding, but dropped out to do an internship with the magazine »Yacht«.

In 2014 he started a two-year sailing trip with his current wife, Cati, after which they bought a catamaran in the USA and used it to offer charter trips around the Bahamas.

Erdmann wrote the book "Can you take the sail out of the sun?" About the experiences during this time.

The couple has lived with their son near Hamburg since 2019.

"For many guests, it is a question of politeness that the host drinks you."
