  • Description


    Connect people, share the fascination of sailing or to awake your enthusiasm for the sea and winds, living with the nature is what give us the beautiful feeling to be alive.
    The years of experience to maintain a ship make us to Allrounders but not to All-knowers!
    So we will join and learn from each other!

    We are:
    Papa Birgir: Pensioner after 35 years as a Captain on a beautiful wooden-schooner. Now he is building his new "floating home - the sailing ship.

    Me, Hávar∂ur: I had the most beautiful childhood, growing up at sea with my father. Of course I became a captain as well! My sailing ship is part of my life since 2005.

    Welcome at the maintenance of a ship! Here we are always busy with very different tasks.
    With wood (sanding, oiling, building something)
    With metal (derusting, cutting, drilling, painting)
    Electric (replacing cables or lamps)
    Gelcoat (repair and cleaning)
    among other everyday duties (cleaning, cooking, fixing small things here and there, also in our house or car).

    You are very welcome to be part of our every day, we are offering you free meals (by peculiar interest, we can introduce you to the faroese-kitchen) and accommodation, either onboard or in our house.

    If you prefer, come and stay in our house in Hoyvík, 5 Km from the city center, where you will stay in a very quiet area, next to the nature with a stunning view out of the windows.

    We eat everything and would love to experience your national cuisine through you!
    Most of all, we eat fish and sea food.

    Feel home! Feel free to open the fridge and use the kitchen with us.
    We love to take the time to have meals together and cock for lunch and dinner.
