  • Description

    Description

    The core of the project is having this unique experience of traveling sailing while renovating 3 sailboats. Mostly the inside of them. The participants will have the opportunity to sail in 3 very 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 mostly 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 an headlamp and a little dry bag.
    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.
    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.
    Minimum physical condition is needed.

    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..
