    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We will teach you about navigation, helming a sailboat and share our knowledge of the thousands of trades needed to travel by wind. Together we will explore the culture and food of the places we visit, meet many people along the way and find adventures big and small.
    Last but not least, while gazing at the stars, we enjoy a good conversation.

    We have two very energetic boys, ages 2 and 5, who not only want to explore the marine wildlife with you, but also want to play LEGO, read books, draw pictures when the boat is rolling on big ocean waves. While sailing expertise isn’t necessary, experience with little kids is. It is necessary that you have enough experience on sailboats to be sure you can handle yourself and life on the ocean without becoming seasick. Apart from child care you will be part of the daily routine of running a boat from provisioning, to cleaning to general maintenance. Crossing to the Canary Islands with us on our boat, means that you will be with us all day every day for at least a week and privacy on a boat by nature is pretty minimal. So you should know what you are signing up for. Then this will be an amazing experience for all of us.

    What else ...

    A sailboat crossing oceans is a very unique environment in many respects. It is important, that you understand what this means for you. There will be amazing beaches, blue lagoons with turquoise water and dishes you have never tasted. But there will also be strong winds, big waves and the fact, that you can’t just get away when you want. It is an environment where many sensations feel amplified, the good and the bad. So we are looking for a balanced, open minded and cheerful friend who is motivated to cross a huge ocean with kids.
