Owner Overview

I started sailing 15 years ago after selling my plane – and decided to slow down. I owned three different monohulls, including a 1929 vintage sailboat made of wood.

I became acquainted with the Antares when my close friend Charles bought Antipodes in 2015. She was splashed, and I sailed with Charles from Argentina to Trinidad and then to Grenada.  I purchased Antipodes from Charles in 2019. I wanted to fulfill my dream of crossing the Atlantic and sailing in the Mediterranean.

I sailed from Florida up to New York and then, from there, to Spain. I then sailed from Spain to Palermo, Sicily. The pandemic hit, and I could not sail Antipodes for almost two years.

I live and work in Argentina. Barcelona is a little far away from home, and I choose to spend more time with the family. My granddaughter was born last year. I bought another boat in Argentina and, therefore, I can sail almost every weekend

Antipodes is a very well-maintained boat. Although I have owned her since 2019, I’ve known and sailed her since she was splashed in 2015.
