    To all the adventurous travelers!

    The international sail training vessel allows people of any age from all walks of life the experience of being at sea regardless of their financial situation. While learning seamanship, fishing, carpentry and many more we are going to explore the beautiful landscape of Nova Scotia.

    There is a great variety of daily duties on board. Besides cooking and cleaning, refitting the boat (which includes painting, preparing and replacing sails, general maintenance, fishing, etc.).
    At the moment we are on the beach in Lunenburg working on a refit. Because of this we are particularly interested in anyone with experience in welding and general maintenance.

    THE MISSION is to get the boat ready to continue the second circumnavigation voyage as an international sail-training vessel.

    Therefore I am looking for help with basic live-aboard duties, fishing, shopping and cooking. Workawayers with special talents or abilities are encouraged to participate in art projects, basic welding, electric, carpentry, interior decor or computer help (to market my book "No Fixed Address" the true story of the first 17 years exploring the planet's oceans and countries with the junk' on her first circumnavigation).
