IZI's Website - Home
Welcome to IZI’s website. IZI is a sailboat, a Bavaria 35 match build in 2004. We bought her in 2010. This website is dedicated to IZI and the activities around her.
Owning a sailboat has been a dream for us for a long time, even we got little sailing experience just back in the summer of 2009. At that time we started to learn sailing, and also started to look for a sailboat.
In 2009 we passed the first sailing course exams, and received the certificates for sailing. Through some research and site visits, we found and bought IZI in Denmark in June 2010. Two weeks later, we set sails and went on our first major sailing trip. It was a trip that would take 3 weeks, and take us around the main islands of Denmark.
During those 3 weeks, we experienced and learned a lot. Some of these learnings have turned into actions and improvement projects. We spent the winter 2010-2011 to complete many of them, plus the general maintenance of IZI.
In 2011 the main event was our first race ‘Sjælland Rundt 2011’ in Denmark. We were very happy for completing the race in good time, even the weather could hardly get any worse.
This website tells the stories of IZI. It is written for the friends of IZI. We are happy to share the site and our experiences with other people who want to start sailing their own boat.
Welcome to IZI's website. We hope you enjoy reading it, as much as we did putting it together.
