    Description

    I'm a spanish 26 years old guy fascinated of sailing, reparing my sailing boat since 2 years, and have sailed around France, Spain and Balearic Islands with it :D
    I'm sailing and working for ships since 7 years , I have sailed around 5500 miles with different sailing boats and had unstoppable adventures.
    If i would choose a word would be FREEDOM, a color Turquois, a food fruit, a fruit Mangooo, musical group UAKTI, a instrument piano!...But all this is today, let's see what I choose tomorrow! :P
    When the ship will be ready me and a friend we are planing to create or join to a project of conservation of the sea. We have another ship in Canary islands to create the project with both ships :)
    I'm calm but active, patient, ambicious, open, flexible :)

    I'm vegan but I have no problem having meat in the fridge !
    I love to play music, hiking, climbing, diving, and all kind of xtreme sports, allso love meditation, repare all kind of things, share interesting talks, sail away, the rain , philosophy, recicling and the most I love is nature and the people who care of it :)

    Help

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

    We are anchored in the bay of Soller (north of mallorca) and sometimes in port depending the weather.
    We are preparing the ship 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 be here, where will be our next heading... but normally we will be sailing sometimes around when there is nice weather. Around here there is many paradisiac virgin beaches to have some days off.
    The jobs now are : Carpentry (small boxes and shelfs), change the fabric on mattresses and cushions(sewing work), sew small repairs on sails, fix asewing machine, cleaning in general, removing paint mistakes in the deck, cooking, write small notes of instructions of toilet kitchen... all tipes of bricolage and if you are good with tools there is much things to doo. And then when we are sailing the works will be more general as cleaning , cooking, watches ... and more creative tecnical jobs to create a more functional ship, like install pulleys, stoppers, winches...

    Here there is no time to get stuck looking stuff in 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!
