Safran 2007 à Agnieszka and Wlodek ex Madéo
In 2007 we bought and brought to Poland a Trismus 37 called SAFRAN, ex
MADEO, ex LIBROU.
This is probably the best known Trismus 37 in the
world because of a very good web site.
Anyway we came to
France (Bretagne) in the end of April, spent 2 weeks painting, reparing
and preparing for the voyge and left for a slow trip to the Baltic sea.
3 and 1/2 months we finally reached Gdansk. We visited 56 harbours in
France, Channel Islands, Belgium.... passed over 200 locks and bridges
in Holland, dried on a sand and moored in mud harbours in Dutch
and German Frisian Islands, entered Helgoland, motored through Eider
Kanal and Kiel Kanal across Jutland Peninsula and entered several
Baltic harbours in Germany, Denmark and Poland.
on a shallow water once, but we managed to get free without help, we
damaged a stenchion (335 Euro payed by insurance) on a German yacht
while entering a box in a crowded marina in a strong wind from the
side.(Safran is really difficult in turning in marinas!!!) But she is
very good on the sea!!!!!
The genoa was broken and we had to sew 2.5 metres by our hands, because there was not a sailmaker in two harbours we visited.

enough big enough and the engine is strong enough. And she is
People were asking about this construction in many harbours :-)
we ordered making a steel strong support for winter storage, a
sprayhood, and a new genoa.
Next seasons we will spend on the Baltic
Sea.and then Norway or Scotland. We will see what future brings
We did not change the name, so the yacht is still called Safran.
