This was a journey where only two large size paintings were produced.
Unaware, Artberg bought for himself a very fast "racing cat". Only later did he find out that his sailing experience was not sufficient to sail as planned to one of the islands in the north of New Zealand.
Because of this he had to stay on a camping ground and in addition to his painting, he had to learn how to sail a sensitive catamaran without falling into the water!
