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 society...my 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... 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".

Rik's S.V.

Panama - South Pacific

Crew wanted: Recreational Crew
Vessel: Sailing Boat
Size:36 f
Location: French Polynesia
Destination: French Polynesia
Logged in: 34 minutes ago

Rik's S.V.: -Not looking for paid commercial crew-
-Due to lack of space - No Couples -

Hi sailors, divers,

My name is Rik and I sail my sail 36 ft Najad around the world. Comfort and safety come before speed, so no hurry, no rush, no race, no smoking

May / June / July/ August : visiting, sailing, hiking,diving,....the Gambier Islands,Marquesas and the Tuamotus

As from March 2018 further Pacific sailing from the Tuamotus up to New Zealand

No race or hurry. Sailing, diving, hiking,.... discover the islands in a relaxed athmosphere....
I am used to sail the boat singlehanded so the boat does not need crew to sail but I like good company around.
Participating in the boat chores goes together with all the pleasures of sailing and enjoying the remote anchorages, hiking and diving.
During longer passages you will have to stand watches ( look out for other ships and call whenever any doubt ).
You will take your share in the cost of consumables, immigration and custom fees,...
You are financially independent.

So what is expected from the crew.... have a positive attitude, having a happy nature;

Contributions for the Yachts upkeep : 20 euro pp pd
All other costs as meals, drinks, diesel, marine fees,.....are on a shared base. Count around 5 to 10 euro pp pd

I only take one crew at the time.

If interested, contact me and let's see how you can fit in.

GypseaHeart

Adventure Cruise: Australia, Indonesia, Singapore and more!

Crew wanted: Amateur crew
Vessel: Sailing Boat
Size:47 f
Location: Australia
Destination: Thailand
Logged in: 39 minutes ago

GypseaHeart: Adventurous, highly engaged crew wanted to join me on an epic adventure.

This will be a proper adventure cruise. Our main priority is to have some serious fun while exploring a few of the most beautiful places on Earth.

Although no experience is required, I will need a lot of help running this new-to-me 47' sailing catamaran. Expect to share all sailing and live-aboard duties (cooking, cleaning, etc..) and just be all-around helpful.

There will be a lot of learning happening on this trip, both on my part and yours, so keep in mind that any set-backs are just a part of the journey.

Please be community-minded. This is a fairly comfortable cruising vessel (In my humble opinion), but it's still just a boat and we will all be sharing a decidedly finite amount of space for not-insignificant periods of time.

Enthusiastic personality is a must! This will be the trip of a life-time, so prepare to make the most of it!

science and surf under sail

Crew wanted: Amateur crew
Vessel: Sailing Boat
Size:37 f
Location: Mexico
Destination: French Polynesia
Logged in: 58 minutes ago

JezzaG: To Spread environmental info thru travel, sport, art and day to day life with locals as we sail through the South Pacific. I think there are plenty of people preaching to the converted in the major arteries of society but, I/we can provide the conversations and the divestment of info and understanding through to the capillaries...like a street performer, a busker of citizen science.

Science and Surf under Sail is an organization in it's very most nebulous form...I offer it to you to mould and shape together with me.

The general concept is to have a two year cycle through the South Pacific from Southern Baja to New Zealand and back. To have that route posted on a web site in order to attract surfers and marine/environmental students to share in various legs of the journey. We will be willing to deviate from our posted track to suite the purposes of guests based on the merits of their research or activity. I would like to travel in a small armada of sail boats in order to host a larger group of guests and achieve a wider sampling or observation or just plain fun. I would like to have the added dimension of this endeavor to be a sort of correspondent based webisode reporting on environment activities and how the are affecting people and how those people are responding to these environmental impacts on their homes and villages. We would also have a sport report, leisure and fun as well as art and food.

I am good at picking up work as I travel in order to fund my own way. I am presently working as a captain of a high tech power vessel for the rich and famous here in Cabo and La Paz, Mexico. I am also a carpenter/joiner, designer/sculptor...good with my hands and can make most of our day to day maintenance and repairs...mechanical, electrical, plumbing, an understanding of our shipboard systems. Now, I want to create a meaning greater than just my own experience and fun...I am no philanthropist but, I see a way to put back, to give back and have fun doing it. I'd like help...participants as partners and crew.

There's a non-profit, A truly non-profit living that can be achieved. Like the pirate ships, environmental privateers of Oceanic equanimity, we'll share the take equally and one extra for the ship. Should we be somehow fortunate enough to make more that we need it gets forwarded on as the partners and crew deem fit...now I am a dreamer...Hey? But, I think it is an imperative that all of us thinking, concerned people that call the seas and oceans of this World "home" become informed, educated and engaged or we truly risk loosing the last bastion of freedom. I can see the technology fast gaining the ability to monitor every moving thing in every remote corner of our planet and once the illegal commercial activities are under control then, yours and mine, our simple activities may come under scrutiny...and it might even seem right to require licenses and permits and fees and charges to move about or live off the land or sea as the case may be. So, we can not become unworthy or irresponsible or complacent with our current freedoms to move about the place.

Many thanks for reading this roughing out of my thoughts but, the final draft will be based on all the input from the founding members...My warmest regards, Jerrid of the "Quo Vadis" 37' Snowgoose, cutter and the "Salvation" 45' wooden Bermuda cutter, ketch a Jim Swanson design I would like to save, needs work.

There is more i would like to add to this, a conversation without end but, for now...A simple and genuine "thank you" for your interest and all the responses to date. It is good to see how many folks are concerned and keen to participate. I work as a captain on a private vessel, I am looking for my line of succession for that roll as I look to the South Pacific.Other characters I would like on board: A marine biologist correspondent, a ocean sport correspondent, web development volunteers, camera type person, maybe a producer type person would be nice, shipwright/carpenter type persons...Seafaring folk, other captains and small ships under sail. Many thanks again...

Gillean Guy

ONE CREW WANTED ECUADOR TO GALAPAGOS

Crew wanted: Recreational Crew
Vessel: Sailing Boat
Size:44 f
Location: Ecuador
Destination: French Polynesia
Logged in: 3 hours ago

Gillean Guy: Skipper on newer, clean, safe boat seeks one crew, short or long term, for trip from Ecuador to Tahiti with long stops in the Galapagos, Marquesas and Tuamotus. No experience necessary--will teach. I pay boat expenses, you kick in something for food. I would like someone who is adventuresome, willing to contribute to boat maintenance and upkeep, open minded, likes travelling to new places, can tolerate challenge and adversity and loves sailing, or has a keen desire to learn. I am fit, in good health (like to run when I can), don't smoke or use drugs, like a sundowner (or two), can accommodate others and provide references. I seek the same in crew. Gillean is a 42' newer Valiant I had built for sailing around the world--strong, comfortable and fun to sail, outfitted with a full compliment of communications and safety gear. If interested, write to me at sailboat dot gillean at gmail dot com. Cheers!

Sogno d'Azul

Cruising the world again

Crew wanted: Friendship/Relationship
Vessel: Sailing Boat
Size:40 f
Location: Australia
Destination: Indonesia
Logged in: 5 hours ago

Sogno d'Azul: Having sailed singlehanded around the world already once I realised there is more... I am looking for a female companion to join me. The big thing I missed on my last tour was that there wasn't anyone on board to share the beautiful moments, e.g. a huge humpback whale just 5 metres off the bow, a gigantic school of dolphins playing around the boat for hours, or just the beautiful starry sky at night.

I have already sailed around the world once from 2009 - 2012 (mostly single handed) and if you want to know more about that adventure, just read my book: Dromen van Blauw. Unfortunately only available in Dutch language, an English update will soon follow. It will tell you a lot about me and the boat.
