Markus is one of Rolf’s regular sailing buddies. Like Peter he had the dream of crossing the Atlantic and made it come true. His sail trimming made us cross the atlantic in 22 days without wind!!! One day I woke up when I thought there was a storm, only to find 10 knots of wind and the ship going 6 knots. I went nuts.
