Pedro left everything behind him

And embarked on a journey around
the world that will last 15 years

The project arises from the desire to share my love for the Sea, life and admiration for the times when men were makers of their own legends ...
It's time to live your dreams, join us!

My first navigation with Pedro was to cross the Atlantic, from the Canary Islands to Brazil and later, to make the journey from Ushuaia to Valparaíso through the Fuegian channels ... and to live the time with more uncertainty of the embarked pandemic.

For me, the Copernico-Doblon is Pedro Jimenez, a great guy and a great friend, always cheerful, giving the whole crew a good vibe even though the moment is not the best.

Anyway, he tries by all means that those bad moments, are the least, as he always says "Here you do not come to suffer"

A guy with some resources to solve problems on the ship, which at least continues to surprise me

I will continue to go regularly to see him and sail with him whenever I can!

Joy Sailors!

One is marinated and begins to enjoy. With a triumphal entry into the Guanabar√° bay. All this is what I came to look for, to add experience and make a longer journey than usual. Many thanks to the Copernico Doblon, a Boat in which I felt very comfortable and safe. Thank you very much Pedro, a Great Captain, very knowledgeable about the art of sailing and his ship and a host like I rarely knew, opening his house to us and making it feel like our own.
Thank you and we will see you soon on other voyages.

I shared the journey from Salvador de Bahia to Rio de Janeiro, in March-April 2019 with Pedro and four other Argentines, great group, we had a great time, today friends despite the distance.
Pedro besides being a great captain, is a wonderful host. A cute madman, very lovable.
That trip was a before and after for me.
I returned to Buenos Aires and decided to make a change that had been maturing ... I began to delegate my work to have more time for myself and to prepare for my future ...
A few months ago we bought a boat in Italy with friends ...
we are going to sail the Mediterranean this year ... crossing the Atlantic by the end of the year ...
January 2022 from the Caribbean, Panama Canal, Galapagos, Marquesas, Polynesia, Fiji, Tonga, Australia ...
Be careful if you sail with Pedro ... he is contagious ...

In a few words I cannot tell you the incredible adventure that happened crossing the Atlantic from West to East
We set sail from Havana with a tropical storm over our stern that made us fly and travel 245 miles in 24 hours, imagine my first day of sailing on the Copernico Doblon yeeeeeeeeeeeeaaaaaah
34 days of navigation with four stages
Havana - Bermuda island
Bermuda - Flores island (Azores)
Flores Island - Faial Island (Azores)
Faial Island - Vigo City
What a good time we had, how much I learned and how I value having a person like Pedro de Capitan and master of ceremonies
Great navigator, he knows his boat like the palm of his hand, fun, positive, humble and generous, I have no words to tell you how lucky it was to sail with him
The Copernico ........ robust and fast boat at the same time, docile and powerful, comfortable, navigator without rest and welcoming in all its forms

I participated in the crossing of the Atlantic 2019, of the wonderful Copernicus Doblon. A dream come true with an unbeatable crew. An experience full of great memories and many learnings, which I would undoubtedly repeat again. Very fortunate to be part of the great project of the Copernicus Doblon. Much joy to everyone!
