    The core of the project is to create sailboat rotating teams across different waters and countries while renovating boats in the meantime. Mostly the inside of them. The participants will have the opportunity to sail in different boat. A very light aluminum 31 ft sailboat Pretty sporty. An heavier displacement 44 ft cutter rigged sailboat and a 40 ft solaris catamaran.
    There is not really a typical day. We just sail , no motoring. So we follow weather window opportunities to move around. We sometimes have to wake up at 4 or 5 or 6 whenever the wind kicks in. Night sailing. We go on mixing fun and adventurous land excursions when reaching new anchorages destinations.
    Activities are as varied as, kayaking, visiting remote villages, waterfall, canyons, hiking, snorkeling, caving.
    It s a good thing if you have a rechargeable headlamp and a little dry bag , water ear plugs, diving masks, a set of cables to recharge phones... hammock could also be useful.
    You will be confrontated to almost off grid situation as we sail to remoted places and as we are often limited in power, water and wifi acces.
    The idea is to have those goods around the globe , boats and later lands where nomadic or semi nomadic people can come to enjoy, stay for awhile, come back later making a big platform of rotating crew. Getting attach to the materials, and caring well, taking responsabilities for them and then completely dettach oneself from the boats and lands when leaving knowing that another team will take good care during their shift. So that the boats and lands never become overwhelming.
    Life on the boat can be a all lot of fun but its not made for everyone. We work as a small community we share everything and live in a reduced space with a lot of people (up to 15), there's not a lot of privacy, not even in bathroom. However we manage to live all together and to make it work, even in hard moment we find solutions and make the impossible become possible.
    We are adventure seekers and enjoy challenging ourselves. We reach the next destinations with efforts , patience and sailing techniques.
    Minimum physical condition is needed.
    We like to keep this freedom of creating the adventures as we go. Deciding together what will be the next destination, or land we will go to explore. Flexibility is your best weapon here. Boats are made as minimalist as possible , avoiding extra expenses to keep the journey as cheap as possible , we want them to be light and spacious to sail well and comfortable. that often combines well with reducing our environmental footprint. Example ; we clean the hull ( underwater part) with a spatula and brush instead on fixing those very toxic paints ( antifouling) . This is no charter, you need to be very proactive in this project.
    We lift the chain and anchor by arm strength💪
    We always stir the boats no autopilot , one Windvane on Josée
    We anchor by sailing, and leave anchorage by sailing too.
    You need to be super patient and tactician in light wind.
    We can kayak pull the boat for a few hundred meters if needed. Or fins swim push the boat,

    We have 5 kayaks and paddle to shore ( no engine)

    We often sail with other sailing boats as a flotilla , having workshop inland depending on crews. Dance, yoga, circus, Night projection film or documentaries,

  • Algo más...

    Algo más...

    We ask for participation to share most of the cost associated with food , cooking gaz. Dinghy gasoline, soaps, the hygienic : papers, sheets. Electricity, drinking water creation....
    We want to stay in the 5 us $/day/pers maximum ( covering food ) as workaway recommand.
    It is technicaly difficult to have people bringing their own food as we work as a community. But if you have special diet you are welcome to it.
    We do a lot of sailing, and wear the materials a lot faster as new volunteers don t know how to handle the boats as well as more experienced sailors. Tear sails , destroy ropes. Rigging, loose and break things..
    there are some pretty caves around , and also a canyon , hot water springs and some fun hikes , lots of rivers and canals to check out, monkeys in the trees.. Manatee in the water.
