    *We receive lots of applications, so please read well the profile and make sure it fits you, if you write us please tell us about the things that you like to do the most and what can your hands give to this project :). It's important to know that we normally don't plan more than 2 weeks in advance, so if you would like to come in few months write us as late as you can.*

    We have just arrived from a long trip from Canary islands to Mallorca. Now finally we have both boats together and we are looking forward to join to a project of conservation of the sea.
    I love to give new life to abandoned boats and the best purpose i would like to give to those boats is to collaborate with the sea sustainability.
    If we dont manage to join to a conservation project then we will have to sell one of the boats :/

    I'm a Spanish 27 years old guy fascinated of sailing, repairing my 2 sailing boats since 2 years, and have sailed around France, Spain, Madeira, Balearic and canary Islands with them :D
    I'm sailing and working for ships since 7 years , I have sailed around 7000 miles with different sailing boats and had unstoppable adventures.
    If I would choose a word would be FREEDOM, a colour Turquoise, a fruit Mangooo, musical group UAKTI, a instrument piano!...But all this is today, let's see what I choose tomorrow! :P

    I'm calm but active, patient, ambitious, open, flexible :)
    I'm vegan but I have no problem having meat in the fridge, always that you keep everything clean of blood shit !
    I love to play music, hiking, climbing, diving, and all kind of extreme sports, also love meditation, repair all kind of things, share interesting talks, sail away, the rain , philosophy, recycling and the most I love is nature and the people who care of it :)
    When the ships will be ready we would love to create or join to a project of conservation of the sea.


    Here is a resume of the situation now with more details.

    Onboard we will share the costs of food, diesel if is used and ports if is need to stop in a port for showers, washing machines or so.

    The works on board while sailing will be basically keep everything arranged cooking cleaning, doing sailing watches and basically helps with whatever is needed in the daily sailing.

    Most of the time now we Have both boats together in the Anchorage of the village "Puerto de Pollença.
    The tasks are a bit of everything. Like carpentry, plumbing, electricity.
    We like to make clear that we like to have active people onboard, that have attitude of helping, and is flexible to everything that comes. And very important NO SCREEN ADDICTS ONBOARD!(not joking)
    We want ALIFE people!
    Often we will go sailing all together around the coast of Mallorca :)
    So if you are interested in joining us please contact us and we get to know better and plan something together!

    Hugs!

  • Help

    Help

    We are looking preferably for volunteers with experience in working with tools!

    We are normally anchored in the bay of Soller (north of mallorca) or puerto Pollenca and sometimes in port depending the weather.
    We are preparing the ships to be ready to sail in any direction. And changing all kind of systems to be more automatic and efficient.
    We don't have a clear plan of how long we will stay in Mallorca, where will be our next heading... but normally we will be sailing often around when there is nice weather. Around here there is many paradisiac virgin beaches to have some days off.
    The works now are : Carpentry (small boxes and shelfs), change the fabric on mattresses and cushions(sewing work), sew small repairs on sails, sanding filling painting, fix a sewing machine, cleaning in general, removing paint mistakes on the deck, cooking, write small notes of instructions of toilet kitchen... all types of bricolage and if you are good with tools there is many things to do. And then when we are sailing the works will be more general as cleaning , cooking, watches ... and more creative technical tasks to create a more functional ship, like install pulleys, stoppers, winches...
    HERE THERE IS NO TIME TO GET STUCK LOOKING STUFF ON THE SCREEN! HERE WE ARE ALIFE!
    We need active, flexible, motivated people without princess hands, who is really in the mood of adventure and is ready to immerse give all power in the sailing and whatever comes in the way!
