    Description

    Ahoy!
    I am restoring an old, beautiful, 65' steel ketch, I intend to use in various projects, orientated on sustainability, ecology, kids education and local communities support, in Panama, to begin with.


    Sailing means being closest possible to the nature and elements. It is the most ecological way to travel the world and besides its beauty it also sharpens the characters and has didactic impact on anybody, especially the youth.

    Our sailing farm idea is to join together few principals:
    - living of the grid and self sustainability by:
    - traveling with wind power
    - producing electricity from wind and Sun
    - collecting rain water
    - growing own healthy food on board
    - manufactoring own cosmetics and medicines
    - living consciously in harmony with nature
    - taking part in various projects mostly orientated for youth, especially children from underprivileged backgrounds, orphanages as well as disabled people.
    - taking care of physical and mental condition as part of harmony by practicing Yoga and meditation.

    i have chickens on board, soon a dog and I would like to make little garden with herbs, fruits and veggies.
    After refit "on hard" Drago was "splashed" and sailed to Puerto Lindo, where the engine was fixed. Now is the time to work on deck and on interiors as she is almost completely empty inside...

    Vessel is located in marina in a peaceful bay of Puerto Lindo, Colon, Panama.
    Linton Bay Marina lays within borders of Natural Park of Portobelo, rich in fauna and Flora.
    Puerto Lindo is laid back village with lots of kids on the streets, smiley people and frequent street drumming, located in the bottom of the bay with clear waters to swim in and coral reefs around to discover. Fishing, spear fishing, diving, surfing, jungle hiking - you can do it all here! And just few hours sailing from here there is Archipelago of San Blas - one of the most beautiful places on our planet!

    I speak English, Spanish and Polish so you can learn any of those languages.

    It is a great opportunity to take part in creating new eco-project that in the near future may help many kids to better understand themselves, the world and the mutual relations...

    As for you, chance to learn about sailing, boat maintenance, marine systems and equipment etc . to pass the knowledge of yoga and gardening and all other gifts like cooking etc.

    WHAT TO EXPECT:
    -The acomodation is on Drago that is sitting on the mooring in Puerto Lindo bay. We comunicate with land by inflatable zodiac with outboard engine.
    - the conditions are litle bit rough:
    The boat is almost empty inside with no furnitures and elegant finish, you would expect on the yacht ;)
    there is toilet on board and cooking facilities but no shower. I normally carry fresh water from land in the containers and use it with moderation. As for shower, there is nothing better like morning deep in the sea :) fresh water will rinse the salt after all.
    Also I intent to set up rain catching system as we have rainy season now and we should have no shortage of water :)
    -There was nobody living/working on the boat for last almost a year (including no chickens, that I had before). The first stage would be general cleaning-washing the hull and cleaning and organizing inside. I intend to make order inside (as it was mostly storage for last year) and start to work with the inner garden. In the mean time I am buying chickens back again so we have fresh eggs every morning ;)
    After cleaning and organizing, we start with the garden and with the boat preparation for the passage. There are several winches that need service, we will also play with setting up the sails, blocks and lines, so we make sure that everything is in the right place and works fine.
    -the location of the boat is a bit remote from big cities. There are few bars and very basic food store. For anything else we go by bus to nearby Portobelo or Sabanitas. The buses are very limited to get out and come back here.
    -as for food, I prefer healthy, easy and nutritious. Mostly veggie but fish or meat sometimes for balance ;) we have 3 meals a day.
