Katja Giannini

Katja and Fabio Giannini, a Danish/Italian couple, crossed the Atlantic in 2002-2004 on Faidate, their homebuilt Van de Stadt 47, with their three small children on board. In the following 18 years the only boat they owned was an Optimist on the Dutch lakes. In 2022 they set out again, without a return date, on Faidapiu a Schionning Arrow 1500 catamaran. They started in Italy, crossed the Atlantic again and and are currently revisiting Brazil.
