Non-Consumer Based Cruising

PelagicNomad: Hey Pirates

I'm a minimalist who loves nature/water...and live aboard my gaff rigged Westsail 33 "Panthalassa" which I wouldn't trade for the world!

Never a fan of mindless gadgetry/consumerism/the throwaway non-consumer based philosophy is evolving from books such as Seaworthiness; The Forgotten Factor, Voyaging On A Small Income, Sailing The Farm (downloadable in PDF for free), The Sailmaker's Apprentice, and a handful of other thinking nonconformists... The common theme is a functional, practical, simple and self-reliant approach, overwhelmingly crediting old/ancient designs, constructed with modern materials!

Also, where practicable, I'd like to stock the boat by bartering for organic, locally grown produce... And I dream about developing all things non-consumer based cruising as a group...while WWOOFing with other like-minded WWOOFers/cruisers at an appropriate farm/venue (yet to be determined) - perhaps in the Byron Bay or Hervey Bay areas. Naturally there'd be rigorous sea-trials involved ;-). To keep things simple/achievable...I'd like to start by working through the practical tasks in Sailing The Farm and The Sailmaker's Apprentice, and see where it goes...

Ok, so a little more about these books:

"Seaworthiness; The Forgotten Factor" by naval architect Czeslaw Marchaj compares modern boat design with those more than a hundred years old. In particular, he praises an 1894 North Sea rescue boat, designed by Colin Archer - which my boat is a fibreglass derivative of.

"Voyaging On A Small Income" by Annie Hill is about non-consumer based cruising - having no fridge, eating beans, celestial navigation, and combining old/ancient concepts with modern materials. A couple started with basically nothing at the age of 18, owned/voyaged on a couple of boats, developed a ruthless "cost vs benefit analysis" built their dream boat, and retired by the age of 28 in the early eighties, with enough finance invested to return 1,300 pounds pa, which they both lived off.

Sailing The Farm, by Ken Neumeyer is about "Seasteading":
"With a couple of hundred pounds of seeds, a few dried fruits and a solar still for fresh water, a family could sail around the world without ever having to make that long upwind tack to the grocery store for manufactured products shipped from half a world away."

This dude also teaches us to ditch refrigeration and make/use all kinds of simple, funky tools. The idea is, go organic, buy, forage, and/or grow food on an island... Dehydrate it to store efficiently. Aboard, grow a herb garden, wheatgrass and spirulina, while seeds are sprouted and eaten live. Eat seaweed. Make cheese, yoghurt, milkshakes, dips...with powdered milk. Rehydrate and juice dried fruits/berries. Grind grain and prepare all your food from scratch, daily, without removing or killing the goodness...

Emiliano Marino's family come from a long line of prominent seafarers. He understands traditional boats/handmade sails/real seamanship, and the value of a holistic approach... Entering a market where everything is designed to break, kinda broke his heart... So he wrote a practical guide to encourage self-reliance, called "The Sailmaker's Apprentice"

"I am still, fifteen years later, angered by the hype and ethics of the production sailmaking industry, and morn the general loss of traditional skill and artistry in sailmaking. Furthermore, I deplore a wasteful, thrill-seeking, exploitative economy of sails and sailing, so lacking in foresight except where making a bigger, faster buck is concerned".

Crew Wanted, Darwin to Fremantle

Crew wanted: Competent Crew
Vessel: Sailing Boat
Size:13 m
Location: Australia
Destination: Australia
Logged in: 5 hours ago

Phill365: I am seeking a minimum of 2 crew to assist in sailing a 43' Beneteau from Darwin to Fremantle in August 2017.
Approximately 25 days offshore and 2000nm.
Offshore sailing experience would be desirable but not essential.
General crew duties which wil include day and night watches and some meal preparation.
Competent crew must also have experience with sail trimming, sail reefing, navigation, operation of GPS and Autopilot, an understanding of AIS and the ability to assist other crew with the above.

Crew will be required to be onboard on the 29th July with departure around the 4th August (these dates are yet to be confirmed).

Crew selection will be around the 10th of June.

Vessel is fitted with latest electronics, auto pilot and all required safety equipment.
Crew will have a private double cabin with head and shower.
Reimbursement of expenses to and from yacht can be negotiated.
All reimbursements will be paid on arrival in Fremantle.
Continued onboard accomodation available in Fremantle if required.

I am very safety conscious, the safety of my crew is my first priority, I respect the ocean and its ability to always keep you on your toes. I have been in the worst and best weather and seas that WA produces, I sail within the limitations of the vessel. This being said its all about everyone on board feeling comfortable, having a good time and enjoying the adventure.

I live in Fremantle WA and will be in Darwin between the 2nd & 5th of June (if anyone there is interested in catching up and discussing further).
If you are interested and available for this voyage you will need to make contact with me, even if I have viewed your profile. I've sent too many emails to crew who do not respond..
I will respond to all enquiries received.
As the cabins are double berths, I am able to accomodate couples. The more crew the better.
Thank you for taking the time to read through my ad. I look forward to hearing from you.
Kind Regards,


Young fun crew sailing the Caribbean

Crew wanted: Amateur crew

Destination: Australia
Logged in: 6 hours ago

Geoffrey&Tara: Ahoy! We're a young Australian couple (Geoffrey 34 and Tara 28) who will be sailing our 47ft catamaran called Wild Thing around the Caribbean from now until the end of the year. We are looking for young fun crew of a similar age to join us on our adventures!

We are in St Vincent & the Grenadines now on May 27, headed south soon to Trinidad, Tobago and Barbados. Then north through Martinique, Dominica, St Martin, Puerto Rico, Bahamas, Cuba, Jamaica and Central America. We need crew now here in the Caribbean! We will cross the Panama Canal and take our time sailing across the Pacific Ocean back to Australia in 2018.

There are 4 double bedrooms on board, each with their own ensuite. Ideally we're looking for couples or a pair of close friends to share a room together, so that we can fill our capacity to sleep 8 people. There is a shared contribution expected for all food and boat expenses. We share all the cooking and cleaning and sailing. But no sailing experience is necessary.

Please look at our photos!

Get in touch if you're interested! Or send us a private message on Facebook at

PhoenixStar: I am looking for female crew to do a trip north late April or early May leaving from Hervey Bay, so if you need sea time and /or a chance to sharpen some sailing skills or just a holiday in the sun you are welcome.The boat is not a slave ship so you are free to do whatever you want so long as it is not dangerous. Argue with the captain, knit, read, even stand naked on the fore-deck singing "Oh what a beautiful morning" off key.

A sense of humor would be an asset and some cooking skills almost a must. And silent thunderous resentment is a deal breaker. Apart from that, just house trained will do.

Don't worry too much about my extreme old age, I have been sailing boats single handed for decades. And the little Phoenix Star is a delight to sail.
