Sailing With Luna

A way of life

A magnificent journey of chasing my dreams

Welcome to Sailing With Luna! My name is Micael, and I am a software developer turned sailor. I have spent most of my career working with software development, but my true passion lies in sailing and exploring new places.

I have always been inspired by the idea of leaving everyday life behind and embarking on a new adventure. My hunger to explore and my desire to break free from the Western way of living has led me to purchase my boat, a Hallberg-Rassy Monsun 31, a well-proven and reliable bluewater boat with reliable ocean crossing properties.

Here and on YouTube, I plan to share everything from actual sailing, exploring new places, boat fixing, and everyday life issues that will happen when you travel. I want to glimpse what it’s like to live on the sea, the challenges and joys that come with it, and the lessons I learn along the way.

My journey will start in Gothenburg in one or two years, and from there, I plan to work my way down to the Mediterranean, where I hope to spend up to a year before heading to the Caribbean. The rest of my journey is undecided, but I am excited to see where the winds will take me.

Despite being a novice sailor, with only a few day trips on friends’ boats, I am confident I can take on this adventure. My personal goal is to explore new places and prove to myself that I can do this. My family consists of my grown-up children who have already moved away from home, and part of the reason for creating Sailing With Luna is to keep them posted on my life. I hope to find some part-time work that I can do remotely. If you have ideas, drop me a message.

If you’re reading this and have been dreaming of embarking on your journey, I encourage you to take the leap and do it. Don’t wait because then it might never happen. I hope my journey and experiences inspire you to follow your dreams and live the life you’ve always wanted.

As I prepare for my big adventure, Sailing with Luna will focus on the necessary preparations before setting sail. This includes boat work, learning to sail, and other essential preparations. I aim to release two videos/updates per month leading up to my departure. Once I’m at sea, I aim to share weekly videos and posts so you can stay updated with my journey.
