Erster Maat: Bouke


Johannes Stm 5k



My name is Johannes

Position: First Mate

I am from Munich/Germany and I started my nautical career in the commercial shipping industry. For a long time I sailed on container ships and on heavy lift vessels. Of course, on my voyages I have also encountered a number of proud square-rigged sailng vessels time and again. As a result, I became more and more involved with this type of ship, read the novels of the author Patrick O'Brian and was so fascinated by the filming of his story "Master and Commander" that I simply wanted to sail on traditional ships. Actually, I wanted to stay in commercial shipping on the side, but then I decided to dedicate myself entirely to sailing under sails.

I met our Captain Moritz during a course for patent holders at the Dutch nautical school in Enkhuizen, this was my first contact with the Eye of the Wind, so to speak. Shortly before Christmas 2019 I had my first trip on board and since April 2020 I am a member of the regular crew. My first trips in the Caribbean were simply great, I really enjoyed this time. My big dream would be to sail around the world with the Eye of the Wind, especially the South Sea islands in the Pacific would appeal to me. I am looking forward to our next trip together. See you soon ... on board!
