    I am still finishing the boat. Doing paint work, work on and below deck. Setting different up eco projects, making a compost toilet. Other than that I am sailing whenever I can. And working during the weekdays to save money. Eventually I am looking to sail out in a crew of between 3 and 6, departure planned for April 2020!

    Shared living space on a 41ft ketch. There is a total of 7 bunks on board.

    Food and the diet is a big part of the project. Everybody is welcome to join the project, but I do try to limit the factory farmed animal products on board. Depending on time you work on board, food is included.
