Durlindana, an important name for an important boat. A boat born from an idea and an enderless journey. A very long trip started with another fabulous boat: the Mai Stracc, a small boat, but with a big heart that took us everywhere, in all the seas of the world, to all latitudes, from Alaska to Antarctica, so many islands, so many beautiful places, so many friends, but above all a trail full of joy

Itinerary suggestion

After 20 years of traveling we found ourselves in a changing moment and we found Durlindana, we discovered within us still so much energy and a great desire to start over. We firmly believe that everything we have experienced must be shared in some way, not only by telling it, but also by showing our world that unfortunately is changing too quickly.

The magic of ice, the colors of a Polynesian lagoon, the Mexican desert, the Angra dos Reis jungle that leaves space, on the seashore, to incredible beaches. But also Rio de JaneiroNew York and much, much more. Yet all this often disappears beside the encounter with a fisherman who has known us for years, to find a Polynesian family that has adopted us, to the pure and simple joy that the high sea gives you.

We sail, if you wish we can do it together.

Andrea and Chicca

Sail with us around the world in stages started in 2016, a journey that will never end!

With Andrea e Chicca :

  • Andrea Pestarini :

He always sailed, miles traveled to every latitude are counted.
He dedicated his life to the sea and is enthusiastic about this choice and to share moments of his marine life. 

It has innumerable crossings in all the oceans of the world, CAP HORNIER, over twenty-five years of professionalism in the world of cruises and crossings.

Andrea Pestarini sails since he was young:

In 1992 he took part in the competition Colombiadi and won his category.

In 1994 he gained the second place in the Atlantic rally A.R.C.

In 1995 he brought Mai Stracc, a Westerly 36. It is the turning point, the moment in which Andrea started to live the sea not only as passion, but as choice of life.

In 2002, after 15 oceanic crossings, he sailed through Pacific Ocean which amazed him. This is why Andrea decided to discover the South (40 south) with the Australian winter, and then the North (62 North). He moved from Thailand to Japan from which he decided to reach Alaska, where Mai Stracc knew icebergs.

He is always searching something new, different and real, sometimes it has been discovered in French Polynesia atolls or in Marshall Islands, or mirrored in the ice. This is the real essence of this travel. With more than 4500 NM alone, Andrea went from Tahiti to Chile and then, together with Chicca, his wife, he sailed along the chanels of Patagonia. In Ushuaia Andrea trained in order to realize his big dream: Antartica by sailing boat, a trip undertaken in Januray 2011. After having discovered Maine, on the East coast of USA, Andrea and Chicca went to the far north.

In 2008 Andrea wrote his first book and in 2012 the second.

  • Chicca Bono: 

    Graduated in languages, she has been sailing with Andrea since 1999, loves to live on board, meet people and get lost in the world.

    On board in addition to the kitchen is active sailor, CAP HORNIER, in the time clippings translates to French and English to the publishing house "Il Frangente" which published Andrea's books.
