Newsletter January 2017
As we enter 2017 sailing the farm wants to wish all our friends a
sincerely happy new year.
2016 was a big change for our project- it was the year of sailing, not
just boatbuilding and farming.
Sofar we have sailed more than 2000 nautical miles from Oslo to the
been more than 30 pepole onboard in 2016. Hailed from all over the
world. It has been a joy to sail with all of you and we hope to see
some of you salty crew back for more fun and seasickness in 2017 :-)
We are slowly starting to know this metal lady and she seems more
happy in stronger winds. Her fastest speed is 8.7 knots. She hates
headwind and doesent like tacking very much. (as matter of fact she
tacks like a pregnant whale on a bad day) floats like a duck in big
waves and feel extremely safe in rough weather
For 2017 we hope to continue explore our fantastic planet, share and
learn new skills and also get scuba diving
explore our underwater world.
Our next big leg will be from Canary to South America
or West Indies
then onwards into pacific. If you want to join please send us an
. We always look for nice people staying long term onboard to run
And again, we wish you all fair winds and happy 2017.
