Marc  Bielefeld - Taking the Wind Along


A declaration of love to life on the ocean waves

An old sailing boat and the first long summer on board – that is how it all started. Since then Marc Bielefeld has been living and working on the water – away from the noise, hustle and bustle of city life – sailing where the whim takes him. It could be Scotland or he might make for the Danish islands and Swedish skerries; then he discovers the Elbe River and the coasts of Germany. In small harbours and smoky pubs – everywhere he meets people who share his passion for the wind and water, his search for freedom and an existence far away from the consumer society and speed.

He tells of one of the last journeymen boat builders in Germany, of a Frenchman sailing round the world in a tiny sports catamaran, and a couple who abandon everything when they are in their mid-fifties and from then spend their time sailing round the world.

A book that shows that the dream of an independent life can come true – inspiring, enthralling and entertaining.
