The 64-year-old Bavarian has left behind 64,000 miles on water and just as many on land. In the YACHT he talks about the most beautiful areas, his greatest adventures and the insatiable searches for distance.
"Most circumnavigators do not leave the well-trodden paths," says Wolfgang Clemens, who set out to explore the globe 20 years ago with his self-built, 15-meter-long yacht "Bavaria". Clemens himself repeatedly interrupted the 64,000 nautical miles he left behind in his wake by extensive land expeditions.
So, having arrived in Africa, he set out to cross the black continent. 50,000 kilometers later, without even having used an airplane once, he reached his home town of Röding in Bavaria.
However, Wolfgang Clemens doesn't stay in one place for long. He's not a regular life type. Today he invites charter customers to his ship and sails off the coast of Kenya and Somalia.
Next year he wants to go to Madagascar, the Seychelles, the Maldives and then east to Thailand. Guests are also welcome on these trips.
