Loss of our sailing yacht

Loss of our sailing yacht

We are very sad to explain that we have lost our beloved sailing yacht “Contentious Eagle” in February 2019 due to a strong storm in Chania on Crete, Greece.

You can support us with any kind of help that we can continue our mission of movie making about adventure, nature, science and health documentaries.

With the sailing yacht in our film we wanted on the one hand to continue searching and researching for substances for anticancer therapy and on the other hand to offer guests such as patients and other scientists the opportunity to sail along on our trips and go diving with us for pure participation in expenses. We had set up a small diving centre and a biologic laboratory on the boat.

In February this year our sailing yacht, shortly the “Eagle”, sank completely in a very heavy winter storm in the old Venetian harbour of Chania on Crete in Greece.

The damages to the boat and its equipment are fatal and mean a total loss for us. We lost the boat and our laboratory completely due to this natural disaster.

But that was not the only setback!

Already on August 22, 2017 the skipper and filmmaker Stephan Stahl came with the boat into a dramatic development and trouble for our projects – a real nightmare happened.

Due to a mishap and due to missing information in the nautical charts, the boat was arrested by the Greek coast guard during a diving excursion near Chania, confiscated and Stephan accused of illegal diving operations based on ancient treasures.

In summary, I am accused of being a treasure hunter and would use the boat to steal ancient treasures in the Aegean. The biggest nonsense I’ve ever been accused of !

Our now published film should also clarify what we really did with the boat. A several year survival trip to heal our souls and help patients suffering from cancer. Searching for marine plant and animal species with potential to treat cancer in the Med. Sea.

On our sailing and diving adventures we have made many international friends and learned how survival works. We want to continue our work and adventures and need a new boat and laboratory…

Sailing and Diving in Greece

Sailing and Diving in Greece

We operated shortly the “Eagle” a 33 feet (10m) old styled cruiser sailing yacht as our adventure sailing cruising platform. The skipper is a marine biologist and scientist, scuba diver and film maker using the yacht for researching marine medicine topics and doing adventure film making, which means that our “Eagle” was a tiny lab equipped with all diving stuff like compressors, scuba tanks and lab devices for marine research, aerial and underwater film making in 4K/UHD.

The boat was very safe and fully equipped with radar, sonar, echo, radio, several chart plotters, auto-pilot and all required security devices and of course was technically in very good condition. It is a classical boat but very safe in ruff seas with average speed between 5 to 7 knots under engine and also when only sailing.

Operation area was around the islands of the Aegean Cyclades mainly from Syros, Paros, and Naxos, Ios, Milos and around Chania on Crete because there we had some very interesting and exiting beaches and ship wrecks for diving. Also are Paros and Naxos islands the top destination for diving and kite-surfing in Greece with a dream-like beaches.

The good thing in the Cyclades and on Crete is that you can reach many island harbors and marinas on different islands just in view hours or max full day by sailing or motoring.

Balos lagune. You will never forget this dreamlike place.
