After sailing single-handed across the Pacific from California-Bali in mid 2010 I've discovered that Indonesia, as the largest maritime country in the world has no sailing activities. Can you believe it!?
That's how Bluesails was incepted. I want to change this by introducing our 'Buy One & Give One' program. What that means is if someone purchase our sail we would donate one to a local sailing club. Therefore, cruisers around the world can participate, support our boating industry and empowering the young generation to love and look after the ocean.
Life's not all about me!
