Where has High Five been?

In 2016/17, the High Five visited the Caribbean. From Nieuwpoort we left for an unforgettable trip along the coast to the south after which the crossing followed over the Atlantic Ocean. Here it became clear how comfortable High Five is.

After two years of wandering around the Caribbean, High Five was shipped by container ship to the Mediterranean, where she was chartered with skipper in Corsica.

In 2018/2019, High Five has sailed back to Nieuwpoort, with which you can now enjoy a wonderful sailing experience.

Koen Simkens

Your skipper

“As a child, I inherited the sail microbe from my grandfather and as a small manneke I could not beat away from the boat.”

“In 2008 I finally bought my first boat. A Tequila sport 24 that we experienced beautiful tochs in the North Sea and in Zeeland. 

But soon it got too small. I traded her for High Five, our Beneteau Oceanis 43, with which I have been commercially sailing ever since.”

“In 2016, I left with my family for a two-year half-world trip to the Caribbean.

The highlight of my sailing career is on its own keel sailing the Atlantic ocean from Gran Canaria to Saint Lucia in the Caribbean where we sailed 22 days and 5 hours over this 3049NM long journey.

Together I have over 25,000 miles of ocean and seasail experience on both tidal and non tidal waters.”
